Thames Lido is set to open on the site of the historical Kings Meadow Baths in Reading on 30th October.
After 43 years in a state of disrepair and near demolition, the team behind the award-winning Bristol Lido have spent over four years renovating the Grade II listed baths into a spa, outdoor pool, restaurant, bar and event space.
First opened to the public in 1902 as the Ladies Swimming Baths, the site is believed to be the oldest surviving outdoor municipal pool from the Edwardian period. The team from Lido Bristol were given the opportunity in 2013 to redevelop the Reading complex and restore the pool much like the site in Bristol that was opened to the public in 2008.
The Thames Lido is an urban oasis for al fresco swimming, dining and socialising with the restored 25-metre swimming pool surrounded by a restaurant, tapas bar and Scandinavian-style spa with food by Freddy Bird.
A short walking distance from central Reading, the site has a unique position overlooking the River Thames within one of the area’s largest green spaces.
