Jesus Green Lido

The outdoor pool on Jesus Green is open again for summer 2018!

Situated on the edge of the River Cam, the pool first opened in 1923 and still retains many of its original features. It's the perfect way to cool down during the summer months and a fantastic place to relax and unwind with friends and family.

There are paved and grassy areas around the pool so you can also catch some rays by the poolside.

Jesus Green Lido facts...

  • At 100 yards long, it is the longest lido in Europe.

  • The pool first opened nearly 100 years ago.

  • Jesus Green lido was designed to be long and thin to mimic swimming in the Cam.

  • At the time of opening, the water's a chilly 11 degrees (but the lovely Cambridge sunshine will soon warm it up, won't it??).

  • This year there is a newly built sauna for everyone to enjoy located next to the sunbathing terrace.

Opening Times

Jesus Green outdoor pool is now open every day until 24th September.
