Firstly, many congratulations on your engagement!

Located just a stones throw from London and most of middle England and with excellent rail, air and motorway connections, Thames Lido must be the best location for your wedding.

  • No room hire fee
  • Licensed for ceremonies in 2 areas, the main poolside restaurant or the private room located on the first floor aptly named ‘The Changing Room’
  • Exclusive use of just some or the entire Lido or go large with a marquee on the lawn for 300 guests
  • Large bar
  • Endless opportunities to entertain guests and brides maids with all our spa facilities

Three spaces, one perfect venue

The Changing Room

An intimate room in the trees with polished wooden floor where you can entertain up to 100 guests for the ceremony. This area is also perfect location for the wedding breakfast and offers flexible seating.

The Main Restaurant

Your chance to wine and dine alongside the glorious infinity pool with 130 friends and family. Maybe one long table or many more intimate smaller groups.

A Hired Marquee on the lawn next to the River Thames

Push the boat out and invite everyone from the family, all your friends and even some colleagues’.   The Lido kitchen is equipped to cater for 300 guests and a bespoke service corridor links the kitchen to the outside area.

We can assist in the hire of the right marquee, furniture and any facilities you may wish for.  Reading Borough Council will want a reasonable hire fee for the land to put the marquee on.

Food and drink

The Lido is foremost a restaurant and lucky to also have a celebrated Spa. Our kitchen is run by a team of top chefs and we are many miles away from the all too common ‘wedding package food’.

The bar is not a mile long but our bartenders are used to dealing with large groups and make excellent cocktails.

A selection of canape’s from £12 pp

Three course menu from £35 pp

We prefer to apply a minimum spend level to your event rather than a room hire fee. Please note that this is for an exclusive use of the premises and does not apply if you are prepared to share the venue with other guests.  We can always screen off an area for your party so you will feel its your party.

Please email for more details or to make an appointment to meet us and let us show you the Lido.
