Lido Ponty - National Lido of Wales

Great Days Out


Pontypridd is a market town in the heart of the South Wales Valleys, an area built upon a proud industrial past and a place that attracts visitors from all over the world each year.

A place of such natural beauty, Wales is famous for its National Parks, historic castles, stunning coastline – and of course Penderyn Welsh Whisky, which has its distillery just a few miles up the road from Lido Ponty.

With superb links to the M4 network, Lido Ponty is easily accessible off Junction 32, following the signs to the A470 and into Pontypridd.

It is the latest tourist attraction to open in Wales, complementing other family attractions such as Oakwood Park, Folly Farm, St. Fagans National History Museum.

A trip to Wales offers visitors the perfect package - not just great places to visit and fabulous people to meet, but also a fine array of places to eat and drink, as well as plenty of places to stay to make your visit more than just a day trip. After all, there are not enough hours in one day to see and do everything!
