Ruislip Lido Beach
Beach & Lido
Ruislip Lido, a 60-acre lake with sandy beaches, is a great place to take the family. Play in the sand, build sand-castles, splash about, and have fun! The fun of the seaside, closer to home.
History of the Lido
Did you know that Ruislip Lido was originally opened as a feeder reservoir for the Grand Junction Canal in 1811, then the reservoir was reopened as a lido in 1933. Our famous narrow-gauge railway, the Ruislip Lido Railway was later opened in 1945.
Ruislip Lido is home to ducks, moorhens, geese, swans, fish, squirrels, and more. There are dedicated feeding areas for the ducks and birds, but we ask that you only feed them nutritious bird feed such seeds, rather than bread.
We have a great selection of play areas that you’ll love! The pirate ship on the beach, with climbing frames, swings, and more! There is also a splash water park, and even an outside gym for adults!
