Time Out says

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.



Address: Great North Leisure Park

Now a Better Leisure Centre, the Finchley Lido features a 25m indoor pool, a wave pool with jets, and a small outdoor pool which is only open in Summer. I find it less busy than the central London pools after work but it can still be a little crowded. As soon as the sun comes out of a weekend the lido is very busy and I personally find it too crowded. 

i use to go there as a kid what lovely times we had they should never have changed it just modernised it . It was a proper family place now i have no words or good ones for it i would give it no stars if i could

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
