Plymouth Lido | Plymouth Swimming Pool

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. 

The fantastic outdoor saltwater swimming pool offers both local people and visitors to Plymouth. Be active and swim or play water sports, or relax and sunbathe. 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 sun cream. There is a large central fountain and two smaller side fountains. Just bear in mind, the Lido is not heated.

Tinside Lido History

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. 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.

Tinside Lido Opening Times

Open during the Summer months; May to September between 10am to 6pm

Tinside Lido Prices

£5.20 per person and £4.15 for concessions. Book with Plymouth Active:
