Pells Pools Lido in Lewesis an unheated spring-fed pool with a tree-lined green lawn, sun terrace and exercise lane, children’s paddling pool, floats and other recreational equipment.
The Pells Pool is the oldest documented freshwater outdoor public swimming pool in the United Kingdom, set in the beautiful town of Lewes in East Sussex. They celebrated their 150th anniversary in 2011 and continue to welcome thousands to our unique lido pool in the summer months each year.
Open from May until October, come for the day and enjoy a picnic on the tree-lined lawn. We sell snacks, coffee & tea, soft drinks & ice cream.
The pool is heated only by the sun, so water is usually cool at the start of the season and warms up as the weeks go by. For people interested in open water swim training, wetsuits can be worn to swim in the pool whenever we’re open and we always have a lane set aside for lap swimming.
There are male and female changing areas, and there are small lockers free to use. There are four open-air warm showers beside the lawn which edges the pool, and one cold water shower on the flint wall side.
Male and female toilets and an accessible toilet.
We have ramp access to the pool for people with mobility needs – and wheelchair available for users to access. There are an accessible toilet, shower and changing area.
We do not allow dogs to be brought into the Pells.
