London Fields Lido

A dogged 18-year campaign by the London Fields User Group saved this 50-metre lido from demolition, and it reopened in 2006. Open year-round, it’s now run by Greenwich Leisure Ltd. It’s heated and well used: during busy holiday periods it closes at lunchtime between sessions to make sure as many people as possible can enjoy it. Picnicking is off-limits but there are two cafés.

Love this place so much that I'm secretly hoping for not too much sun this summer, so I don't have to share it with the fair-weather swimmers. Great staff, nice lido-ers, and nothing more beautiful on a cold winter's day than the steam rising off the water and the icy tree branches against the sky.


I be been swimming for years and I have tried several pools in London . By far the best in London in terms of length &size of lanes, facilities, water temp, people, price (it counts as gll-better', if you have the £30/month option) and opening hours . To avoid only in hot summer days;it fills up with people who don't know how to swim or to behave when swimming . Also sometimes the indoors changing rooms are really busy - the ones outside though are great .


Really really dirty, dunno how many time they clean the pooll, but in my opinion it is very dirty. cheers


Went swimming there whilst visting from Ireland on a saturday morning in the depths of winter. Best hangover cure in London! :)


Swimming there on a crisp winter's day is amazing. I definitely swim further and faster just through being there. Combine it with a brisk bike ride to get there and you're in exercise heaven.


Really clean and good condition pool. Wide so lots of lanes for all different levels of swimmer
