Welcoming The Strand Lido

Taking its place on the Historic Pools of Britain map is The Strand Lido in Kent, which has been playing its role at the heart of its community and as a much-loved visitor attraction for over 120 years. Situated on the edge of the River Medway in Gillingham, it is the only remaining riverside tidal saltwater pool in the country.

There is an incredible community feel to The Strand, with lots of Family Friendly fun to enjoy (including a lazy river!), sunbathing spaces and a poolside café.  Like many pools around the country it is currently on the countdown to the 2024 open season, which starts on 25 May and with much work going into the preparations as you’ll see from the image below.

We send a warm welcome from HPB to The Strand Lido team and good luck for the season ahead!
