Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool
One of the oldest Lidos in the country, open May through to September.
Love this place - it is open end of May to end of September - great facilities and great for the kids. they have night swims too.
Built in 1869 this unique pool offers the chance to swim in natural spring water heated to an average 27°C (80°F). Located on the edge of Cirencester Park, there is a 28 metre main pool with slide, separate children's paddling pool, sunbathing patio as well as hot and cold refreshments.
Where on earth can you find a heated natural spring swimming pool overlooked by a castle? Here!! We always use the pool when the kids are with us. They LOVE the place...
Famous open air swimming pool opens from May to September and is about 10 minutes walk away from the aprtment.
