Bristol Lido and Spa

Take a dip in the Bristol Lido for a fun and energising day out! The 24-metre outdoor swimming pool is heated throughout the year to a temperature designed to leave you feeling fresh and energised. To add to this the poolside restaurant menus have a strong Spanish and the Mediterranean feel adding to the ‘holiday’ atmosphere of the venue.

Where can I find the Lido?

Located inside a courtyard of Georgian Terraces, nestled at the heart of historic Clifton.

Bristol Lido is a restored Victorian swimming pool; the original swimming baths opened their doors for the first time in 1850. At around 22-25 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.

  • 2 hours pre-booked non-members swim slots available every hour from 10 am to 3 pm, 7 days a week.
  • The pool and facilities are open to Lido members 7 days a week, from 7 am to 10 pm daily.
