Attraction Information

Enjoy the summer sun with all the benefits of being poolside at The Priory Lido.

This 30m-heated open-air pool is open from May until September and a great spot to spend warm days with the family. With a separate pool ideal for smaller children, there’s enough space for everyone to make a splash.

Originally built in 1934, the pool has benefitted from a significant upgrade and has changing rooms, reception area, toilets and an event room. There’s plenty of grassed space around the pool for reclining in the sunshine, picnicking or playing a game. There’s also a refreshment kiosk for a hot chocolate - if the weather is failing to keep you warm – soft drinks and, of course, ice cream!

Keep cool in the pool!

A breath of fresh air 4 out of 5 stars

I love this, and I love that it's in my town. My boy so love it, it is a heated outdoor pool and if you have a good imagination you can while an hour away thinking you're in the med ... With less consistent weather. It is just lovely, there is room for improvement but can not be an austerity priority. Great fun
