Ruislip Lido is a large lake (technically a reservoir) towards the north of the London suburb of Ruislip. It makes a splendid walk, there is a miniature railway, a pub, a beach, several picnic areas, children's playground and a cafe. It is, in the summer, a very popular place to go. There is no admission charge at Ruislip Lido but there is a charge to ride on the railway and to park your car (unless you have a "Hillingdon First" card). The car parks at Ruislip Lido (and car parking in the area in general) can be confusing. Check out ourRuislip Lido Car Parks section if you plan to drive to the Lido. Cars frequently get tickets or towed away! Use the menu at the head of each page to find your way around this large web site. Here you will find information on the its construction, its heyday (1960's and 1970's), it's demise and rebirth to what it is today, a VERY popular west London attraction.
