Hilsea Lido

Book Tickets Online


The historic Hilsea Lido dates back to 1932, and has been enjoyed by generations ever since.

Today, Hilsea Lido is a 67m long unheated pool, 1m deep at the shallow ends, and with a 4.5m deep diving pit. There's also a 2m diving platform in the middle.

The Ladies and Gents facilities have individual changing and shower cubicles. Wetsuits are permitted. Beach shoes rather than bare feet are recommended for walking around the site. There are also wide doors and ramps to ensure everyone is able to enjoy the water.

A small number of swim aids and water games are available, though swimmers are welcome to bring their own.

During fun sessions the pool is divided to ensure safe management of the diving platform, which is open if sufficient lifeguards are available.

'Just Swim' sessions are for adults only, the whole length of the pool is available but the diving platform is not.

Outside of the pool, there are picnic tables and plenty of space for sunbathing. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own seating and picnic supplies.

Alternatively, why not head over to the Blue Lagoon to sample the homemade cakes, tea, coffee and various hot and cold lunches! You'll also find ice creams and ice cold drinks.
