Droitwich Spa is well known for its brine streams that are found 200ft below ground level. Salt collecting dates back to Roman times and in 1817 the Corbett family made the area famous for its salt and brine Baths. John Corbett occupied the land close to the town and opened the Lido Park for the well being of the town's population.
The Lido Park is near the old part of the town with the main entrance and car park off the Worcester Road approximately 100m from the end of the High Street.
Droitwich Spa Lido is Worcestershire's finest outdoor pool, open during the summer months it's the ideal day out for the whole family!
Early birds looking to swim in fresh air can also take advantage of the early morning swim sessions at a discounted rate. The early morning sessions are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 7am - 9am throughout the 2016 season.
All of the prices at the lido have been frozen for the 2016 season, so everybody can enjoy the facilities for the same great prices as last year!
There's plenty there to keep the kids happy too, a 'Wet Play Area' full of water cannons and fountains will ensure the kids have a splashing good time. For those sun bathers amongst you, why not catch the rays and relax on the sun terraces?
Droitwich Spa Lido is one of the UK's last remaining inland open-air saltwater swimming pools and with a 40m pool, wet play area, sun terraces and Lido CafÃ© you're sure to have a memorable day out!
The Lido is open 28th May - 4th September which is just in time for half term! Don't forget that school holidays are high season, so the lido is open for longer each day! There are also extended opening hours throughout the 2016 season, the lido will be open until 7:30pm Tuesday - Friday!
Sandra Webb, manager of the Droitwich Spa Lido says "Opening the Lido for the summer is always an exciting event. We're very much looking forward to a lovely, warm summer so that the community can enjoy this fantastic facility!"
