Arundel Lido is a very special place where, for more than 50 years, children have learnt to swim and families have enjoyed a wonderful day out. It is a friendly place where children meet up after school on summer afternoons and adults make new friends and acquaintances at the Early Birds and Swallows Clubs.
The location of Arundel Lido, in the heart of the historic town of Arundel, is arguably the best of any open-air pool in the country, offering views of the magnificent Arundel Castle on the hill overlooking the pool.
In 1999, when the Arundel Lido was closed, the local community realised that an irreplaceable asset was in danger of being lost forever. Thankfully the Lido was saved through hard work, public support and fundraising. A community lido needs ongoing support to flourish. Do not wait for the Lido to be at risk again: you can be proactive and offer your support now. In short show that you Love your Lido.
