Very, very crowded. Parking limited. Once full very little room around pool. Security on entry made it seem an uneasy place to be, changing rooms and toilets are very small and dark. Slides are not very fast. Despite security, big groups of older teenagers smoking,...More

We had a fab day out. We had booked online and printed tickets. There was about 15 minute queue to get in but at least we knew we was getting in. The pool area seemed very clean. There was lots of lifeguards that was on...More

Myself and my daughter booked to come here during the heatwave. It was a good job we booked, the queue was round the corner, the car park was jammed, and one we got through the pool was standing room only! A very tired Lido, the...More

Went here as temperatures were in excess of 30 degrees. Although crowded there was still plenty of room to have fun whatever your age or swimming ability. Most of the kids were on the edge jumping in whilst non-swimmers were at shallow ends. The large...More

Visited with our grandchild today. Just reopened on Wednesday. She had a fabulous time. Lovely and clean with plenty of shade. Toilets close by. Just needs a cafe!

Thank you for your review - however, we cant take credit for this as it does sound like you visited 'Stoke Park Paddling Pool' rather than Guildford Lido. We would welcome you to visit our site this Summer too! Best regards, Lido Team
