Ruislip Lido

Reservoir Road, Ruislip, HA4 7TY

Location description

The Ruislip Lido is a reservoir and artificial beach on the outskirts of Ruislip, North West London. Light pollution maps show that the location offers some real respite from the worst of the capital's bright lights, the surrounding woods helping to dampen glow from the horizon. This venue is sometimes used by West Of London Astronomical Society for public stargazing events.


Go stargazing site

A place identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good spot to stargaze from. This is based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and having somewhere safe to park. These locations tend to be remote car parks with no facilities.
