Built in 1934, the Ware Priory Lido is a lovely outdoor pool, which is heated to a minimum of 80°F. It is open seasonally, usually from mid May to early September. Fully qualified RLSS Pool Lifeguards and a First Aider are on duty at all times.

Situated in the grounds of Ware Priory and part of the Priory Trust (Reg. Charity No. 273022), the Lido comprises of a 30m main pool and a teaching pool. There is also a small toddler play area.

Seating and grass areas, where swimmers and spectators can happily sunbathe and eat picnics, surround the pools. Sun loungers are also available for a small fee. The Lido has indoor changing rooms, toilets and showers.

A refreshment kiosk, with access from both the Lido and the neighbouring Priory park, offers a selection of hot & cold food and drinks, confectionery and of course, ice cream.
