Ilkley pool is great for kids and adults alike. The pool is set into four areas that keeps young and older safe. Take the swing ball with you, as there are great areas for ball games etc. Cafe reasonable prices.

Four boys entertained for entire day for reasonable cost, only downside was the quality of the food in the cafe. Live and learn, pack a picnic! Staff very pleasant and helpful!

Lovely little gem.. A staycation must.. Even if there are one or two negatives mentioned in other reviews. I wanted to come here for an age and haven't been disappointed.

Nice for a day out in hot sunshine. Nightmare if you don't like hoards of people. Whole pool experience needs major overhaul. Changing rooms soon become disgusting as do toilets.

Water is understandably cold , bottom of pool full of rough holes , poorly maintained , toilets are disgusting . Extremely expensive for what it is , go have a dip in the river round the corner .

No dogs allowed in the Lido. Maybe go around the corner and swim in the river. You could take your dog and it’s free.
