Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Ruislip Lido is a 60-acre lake with sandy beaches set on the edge of Ruislip Woods and has a narrow gauge railway around it. This venue gets extremely busy during school and bank holidays, weekends and particularly when the weather is fine.

It is easily accessible by public transport and due to the very limited parking visitors are advised to travel to it wherever possible, using the excellent bus and train link services which run frequently throughout the day and which stop close by the Lido.

Parking at Ruislip Lido is very limited and charges apply all year round. There are strictly enforced Clearway zones and parking restrictions on roads around the Lido. Illegally parked vehicles will receive parking fines and may be towed away.

Coaches cannot be accommodated within the car park and there are no parking or waiting areas adjacent to the Lido. Any coach operators taking visitors to the Lido will only be able to drop off and will need to return later to collect visitors.
