The 50-metre pool is surrounded by art deco Grade II-listed buildings which house the Lido Café (winner of a Time Out Eating and Drinking award for 'Best park cafe' in 2011) and exercise studios, offering year-round dance and pilates classes and activities for pre-school children. An eclectic range of events are organised on the site, from film nights to furniture fairs, and the Brockwell Lido Users' Group (www.brockwelllido.com) is active in ensuring the facility meets the needs of the community. On weekdays before 10am admission is free to people over 60.

This is a gem of a lido, situated on the edge of the beautiful Brockwell Park. This non-heated 50m pool is popular all year round. Many people who brave the water during winter without a wetsuit can go and thaw out in the sauna afterwards. Also, highly recommend the lido cafe for a well deserved post swim coffee and cake. Food is a little expensive but the ingredients are organic/locally sourced and tasty.
The pool is open all year round for 2013 with both Summer and Winter Timetables in place. Membership for use of all facilities is also good value! A beautiful setting with great historical value
I think it's a great place to go swimming - it's only £3.10 for a swim, there are showers inside and out. There are small lockers by the pool and the pool is much bigger than most of London's indoor pools! There's a little bit of grit and leaf litter in the pool but -hello!- it's OUTSIDE. This is to be expected. It is open until 8pm every day in summer.
