Tinside Lido

Inside is a slice of the quintessential British seaside from a bygone era

 

Set in a beautiful location overlooking the sea at the tip of Plymouth Hoe and voted one of the top 10 best outdoor pools in Europe, Tinside Lido is an attraction not to be missed. Built in 1935, Tinside is a slice of the quintessential British seaside from a bygone era. The Lido is a wonderful example of art-deco style and is Grade II listed.

Open during the Summer months this fantastic outdoor saltwater swimming pool offers both local people and visitors to Plymouth beautiful surround in which to swim, sunbathe and watch the world go by. As well as the pool itself, the facility also features a sun deck, which is generally considered to be one of the best places in Plymouth to soak up the sun, so remember to bring the sun cream. The Lido design is a semicircle of 180 feet (55 metres) diameter. There is a large central fountain and two smaller side fountains. The Lido is not heated.

At a cost of £3.4 million, the facility was renovated and re-opened to the public in 2005, after it closed in 1992. A lift and hoist were added in 2009 for disabled access.
