An old idea
A new beginning
Welcome to Saltdean Lido, a Grade II* listed modernist icon.
Designed by architect Richard William Herbert Jones and opened in 1938, its unique streamlined design epitomises the best elements of Britains modernist movement and social aspirations for creating seaside architecture for the enjoyment of the masses.
The pool is just the beginning..

Buses 27, 12X, 12, 14 all stop at the Lido, from both Brighton station and town and from Eastbourne. Get off at Longridge Avenue for a one minute walk
The wonderful 'Undercliff Walk' means it's possible to cycle straight to the Lido along the coast from as fas as Hove without have to be on the road. It's a wonderful ride and there are plenty of places to lock your bike.
Brilliant BERYL are a network of pay as you go e-bikes. We're proud to say that the Lido is the eastern hub for the Brighton & Hove Beryl network, which means that you could, in theory, hire in Portslade and Beryl all the way (without using the roads).

There are very frequent trains into Brighton from both London and Gatwick airport. From here you can catch the bus, bike, Beryl or walk!
