Parking at the Lido is limited.

During peak summer holiday periods and Bank Holiday weekends particularly when the weather is good, the Lido becomes very busy due to large numbers of visitors and at these times, the limited parking space fills quickly.

Please note that if you are visiting the Lido by car and the car parks are full, there are no alternative nearby parking facilities. There are clearway zones and no-stopping restrictions in force on the roads surrounding and in the vicinity of the Lido which are strictly enforced.

This means visitors are strongly advised to plan their journey to this attraction using other means of transport than by car.
