Sandford Parks Lido

Sandford Parks Lido is one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in the UK, set in four acres of landscaped gardens in Cheltenham. Built in 1935, the Lido consists of a 50-metre main pool (heated to 26°c) and a children's pool and paddling pool (both heated to 30°c). The Lido has been operating as a not-for-profit charitable trust since 1996 and welcomes around 200,000 visitors each year. On site, there is both indoor and outdoor changing facilities, as well as a cafe with plentiful seating both inside and out.
