Old style lido. Reasonable entry charges. Pool is huge and clean. Water is cool rather than cold. Plenty of staff/lifeguards. Lots of surrounding terrace areas but shade is at a premium. Cafe is cute and OK. However, the changing facilities are out dated and appalling,...More

Nice pool but a little small! Overall it's a nice day out with the kids and safe for all! With about 5 life guards on duty and a family ticket for £18 (2 adults and 3kids) superb value for money!

Morning swim in the fog. Just a handful of swimmers so peaceful and tranquil - apart from the squeals from us as we entered the chilly December water. The poolside sauna is genius!

I went yesterday with my family to enjoy the sun and the water to Parliament Hill Lido and I am afraid, I will not do so again. It is true that the pool looks clean but the area around it isn't. There were papers, plastic...More
