Finchley Lido
Barnet

The 1990s update of the original ’30s lido is housed in a complex which includes an indoor pool, cinema and bowling alley. The (unheated) lido is now far smaller, but still has a grassy terrace. Opening is weather dependent – you won't get an al fresco swim if it's less than 20°C outside. Indoors, swimmers can plough up and down the main pool or enjoy the leisure pool’s wave machine.

The last three times I've been there has been a dead fox at the bottom of the pool by the plug hole - this is very unhygenic and also scares many of the children. Until they remove it I can' recommend at all.

I'd never seen something so disgusting before!! Dirt everywhere! it's a tragic joke not a swimming pool
