A small town within the London Borough of Hillingdon, Ruislip is a quiet area in West London. Primarily a residential area with some businesses dotted around, it’s a safe and urban part of the capital which lies on the outskirts of Greater London.
One of its biggest attractions is Ruislip Lido, an iconic location for many generations from the surrounding areas. Often advertised as a miniature beach, the Lido is a Victorian reservoir which offers an artificial expanse of water which is accompanied by a sandy beach. Despite being entirely manmade, the reservoir and beach have a very authentic feel which is one of the reasons for its popularity during warm weather.
At Ruislip Lido there’s more than just the chance to paddle and sunbathe as it’s surrounded by tranquil woodland. You’ll also find a quaint 12” gauge railway, complete with both steam and diesel trains.
There’s history too buried here, with links to espionage when the Cold War was on. One secret it held in particular was 45 Cranley Drive, the place where communists from the US used to send information to the Soviet using a system involved looped wire around their loft!
It’s possible to reach Central London via public transport and there are a number of trains which stop in the area. However, close to the end of the line, it’s not the quickest way to reach the capital and you’ll probably have to change to reach the areas you want to visit.
