In 1936 the Lido was visited by the British diving team from that summer's Olympics who gave a demonstration on 31 August. During World War two the main pool was closed to the general public and was given over to the use of the various military units in the area. Between 1946 and 1951 a miniature railway ran along the lido site. In 1974 the Lido was used as a set for the Bernie’s Holiday Camp scene in the film Tommy with both Oliver Reed and Ann Magaret visiting the lido.
