About: The lido combines contemporary chic with Victorian heritage – the poolside changing facilities comprising colourful striped curtains and wooden cubicles – and is very much a stylish spot for grown-ups to relax and unwind in.
The 24m outdoor swimming pool is heated throughout the year to a temperature that will leave you feeling fresh and energised. At between 20-24 degrees Celsius, it allows for comfortable swimming and is a wonderfully refreshing contrast to the heat of the other spa facilities – the sauna, steam room & hot tub.
