Ruislip LidoStarting out life as a reservoir feeding the Grand Junction Canal (later the Grand Union Canal), the 60-acre lake became Ruislip Lido in the '30s. In its heyday the water was crowded with boats, water skiers and swimmers; people can no longer take a dip, and probably wouldn't want to in the dirty water, but it's still worth a visit and many do - it gets extremely busy on high days and holidays, especially when the sun shines. Set in acre upon acre of ancient woodland, which once provided timber for the building of Windsor Castle, Ruislip Lido is a pretty spot in west London, affording a lovely walk around the water's edge ending up at The Waters Edge (pub). Parking is very limited; easy access via public transport is advised and it's fun on the Ruislip Lido Railway, running from the beach through the woods to the pub on the other side.
