With stunning views along the Serpentine and a large alfresco dining area, the newly refurbished Serpentine Lido Cafe provides the ideal setting to drink and dine whilst watching the world go by.

Choose from a variety of hot and cold food options including a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes. The Serpentine Lido Cafe serves a selection of teas, speciality coffees and is licensed for alcohol.

Facilities include toilets, a baby changing unit and outdoor seating.

The Lido Terrace will be open from May to June. Please note: the lift in the Lido leisure building is currently under refurbishment and so unfortunately there is no direct wheelchair or pushchair access. The lift is expected to be available for use end of May.

It is located on the south side of the Serpentine, near the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.
