We had a lovely trio to the Lido; the water was cool and chest, the pool and facilities were clean, the staff friendly - and obviously passionate about the work they are doing.

The pool is a good length, and although we had more of a dip than a serious swim, it’s great to do lengths in.

The Lido is also set in the beautiful surroundings of Brightlingsea, so it’s a great place for a day out.

We visit regularly with the family. It's a beautiful pool in a lovely setting. The water is clean and is a nice temperature. The staff are very friendly..
It's great value and a lovely place to pass a few hours, especially on a hot sunny day. The early morning adult swims are nice too, a great way to start the day.

We went to Brightlingsea Lido for a few hours this afternoon. Arrived just after 4, free parking plentiful right outside the lido. Cost was 12.00 for a family of 4, very reasonable. You can hire sunbeds for 2.00 each. At this time the lido was pretty quiet and empty. The pools were lovely, so clean. The water was pretty cold but once your shoulders were under you were fine. Had a lovely time there until it closed at 6. Changing rooms had 2 showers, lovely and warm, 2 changing rooms, spotlessly clean and 2 toilets. They also had a café on site which we didn't use but prices were very reasonable. 1.00 for cup of tea, 1.00 for chips. Will definitely return for longer next time on a nice day. Well done to all involved in running this fantastic facility !
