Thames Lido Restaurant


Relax, indulge, unwind at Thames Lido. 

Thames Lido is the result of a three-year sympathetic restoration project of a beautiful, historical landmark in Reading: the Edwardian Kings Meadow swimming baths, which first opened in 1902. Tucked away behind a leafy path right by the River Thames, our urban retreat is open to the public all year round. 

Here you will find a heated pool, hot tub and saunas, as well as massage rooms and an award-winning restaurant which is featured in the Michelin Guide. 

Visitors to Thames Lido will discover we’re so much more than a pool. The full Thames Lido experience is pure self-indulgence; the perfect venue to reconnect with friends and family, or enjoy quiet, restorative time alone
