Below we will take a look at all the ways you can get to Ruislip Lido. Ruislip Lido is one of the nearest beaches to London after all, which makes it a great place to visit for all the family in those glorious summer months, without having to travel too far.

Getting to Ruislip Lido by Bus

The H13 bus terminates at Ruislip Lido in one direction, and St Vincent’s Nursing Home in the opposite direction. It also passes four underground train stations; Ruislip, Ruislip Manor, Pinner, and Northwood Hills, which makes it the perfect route for many people wanting to visit the Lido.

Ruislip and Ruislip Manor station are also part of the Piccadilly line, which means you can get from Leicester Square to Ruislip Lido, with only one train and one bus – which is great!

Getting to Ruislip Lido by Train

There are four nearby stations that the H13 bus goes past, they are; Ruislip, Ruislip Manor, Pinner, and Northwood Hills. All the stations are on the Metropolitan line, though Ruislip and Ruislip Manor are on the Uxbridge – Aldgate spur. Whereas Northwood Hill sand Pinner are on the Watford/Chesham/Amersham spur. Check the map below for a clearer idea of what I mean.

The Met Line spurs

All of the underground stations are served by the Metropolitan Line, which runs from Uxbridge to Central London. The metropolitan line has great connections, as it passes through a few of the London hubs such as King’s Cross St. Pancras underground station and Bakerstreet.

The Ruislip and Ruislip Manor stations are also on the Piccadilly line, which means you can get from Leicester Square to Ruislip Lido, with only one train and one bus.

These two main underground train lines that run through London, make them great options to get to Ruislip Lido from anywhere in London.

National Rail

Many of the stations also connect with the National Rail network, and therefore it is easy to plan a trip from almost anywhere in the UK. We know that as soon as you get nearer the coast, you are less likely to want to visit the lido, but it’s good to know in case you want to revisit to bring back those childhood memories.

The Metropolitan line connects with National Rail at Harrow-on-the-hill, King’s Cross St. Pancras, Farringdon, Moorgate, and Liverpool Street (on the Uxbridge – Aldgate, and Watford Aldgate spur). Chesham – Aldgate adds Chalfont & Latimer, Chorleywood, and Rickmansworth. Som again, a great selection of stations if you are coming from further afield.
