Description

Worcestershire’s finest outdoor pool situated in the historic Lido Park is a great place for swimming practice and for having fun in the wet play area complete with water canons & fountains.  The Droitwich Spa Lido is available for private hire throughout the  season. Enjoy having the fantastic 40m pool, children’s wet play area and relaxing sun terrace all to yourself.

What does a typical school trip or educational visit include?

A great reward day out at a historic venue dating back to the 1930’s with the pool still being traditionally fed by the Droitwich Spa brine source which lies under the town. A chance to get some outdoor swimming practice under the watchful eye of the lifeguards and enjoy the wet play area.

Website Review July 2014, Rowan

“The pool is amazing! It is well kept, colorful, clean and child-friendly. I had a lovely day out today, it was especially great yesterday as it was so hot, it was nice to cool off! The staff are attentive and respond to your every need! They always put the customers first!”

Trip Advisor Review, Connor S.

“This pool is amazing for a outdoor pool it is very warm the staff are amazing, they are well trained and are very knowledgeable about the pools history. The facility's are kept in immaculate order it is always clean. We are lucky to have this lido as I know some years they scrape a profit or even make a loss. Thanks to friends of droitwich spa lido for helping fund raise to keep this pool open for future generations to enjoy. Visited June 2014”
