You don't have to be on a holiday abroad to enjoy a relaxed afternoon by the pool! Here are 5 of the best outdoor pools to visit this summer in Sussex

 

 

Arundel Lido

These much-loved heated pools near the river have wonderful views of the castle. Enjoy the 25m main pool or play with the little ones in the large heated paddling area. There are picnic areas, a café and shop.

Pells Pool, Lewes

The oldest freshwater pool in the country is a whopping 45m long and is fed by the waters of the River Ouse. Although it’s unheated, it warms up as summer progresses. There’s also a children’s pool.

The Triangle, Burgess Hill

As well as a fantastic indoor complex with shoots, rapids and various pools, there’s a large outdoor pool at this popular leisure centre. You can also ride a rapids channel inside and out again.

Hove Lagoon

This large paddling pool next to the lagoon is a magnet for toddlers in summer. There’s a play area too, so take a picnic and spend the day. You’ll find other paddling pools at the Level and on King’s Road.

Pavilions in the Park, Horsham

This large leisure centre in Horsham Park also opens a heated outdoor pool during summer months. Combine it with time at the inside pool for water shoots and slides.
