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.
