Sandford Parks Lido is an open-air recreational facility and prices are for entrance onto the site, not just swimming. Spectators will be charged normal swimming prices. Please be aware that we are currently operating a one-hour booking system - the price shown is for one hour. Please book in advance online here: https://www.sandfordparkslido….

*Concession prices are available for children aged 8-17, students, over 63s, registered disabled and unemployed


We have a large car park suitable for over 150 cars which sits directly outside of the Lido. Parking fees start at £2. Both coins and cards are accepted and you can also pay by phone. It’s a great location if you are using the hospital, local parks or walking into Cheltenham Town Centre. Please be aware that due to the Covid-19 vaccinations taking place in the Fire Station, our car park is very busy. Where possible, we encourage that you walk or cycle to the Lido. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Lido

The lido is a great day out in the heart of Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is a children's paradise with slides, a children's pool and a paddling pool. Our 50m pool is also an ideal place to train, two lanes are reserved most days.
