Historic Pool Now Open Weekends Only 

We are restoring and renovating Saltdean Lido for future generations


Saltdean Lido is one of the finest remaining examples of modernist lidos in the UK.  It has been saved by local residents who have set up the CIC and successfully secured a 60-year lease from Brighton & Hove City Council (the freeholders) to operate the lido site.  

With the pools re-opened in June 2017, phase 1 of our project is almost complete.  Phase 2 is the renovation of the building.  We are working with the Heritage Lottery Fund (National Lottery) to secure £4.5 million whilst Brighton & Hove Council has pledged £700,000. 

This still leaves a funding gap of around £2-3 million which we have to raise before HLF will release its funding. We know that it will be a challenge to raise this amount in today’s economic climate, although we do have a number of grant applications in place and a lot of work is going on behind the scenes.
