Good place to cool down in the summer heat. The water in unheated but is great when the sun us too hot. Only problem is that the building is derelict and unusable im my opinion. Especially the changing rooms and toilet. You would expect better...More

Pretty expensive entrance cost. Impressive sized pool with a little slide for the kids, and a tiny kiddy pool. Despite the heatwave London was having, the water was pretty cold. Also a small cafe with snacks and ice creams.

Quite apart from the pool which is a lovely (unheated) temperature, the nice length (60 meters) and the shiny bottom, the staff - and notably Maxine - are lovely. Locals will know that early morning swims are the best. Very convenient to the Gospel Oaks...More

Old style lido. Reasonable entry charges. Pool is huge and clean. Water is cool rather than cold. Plenty of staff/lifeguards. Lots of surrounding terrace areas but shade is at a premium. Cafe is cute and OK. However, the changing facilities are out dated and appalling,...More

I live locally, and absolutely adore the Lido on a hot day (as we have had particularly recently - I managed to slot in two lunchtime swims there this week). The pool itself is lovely and well maintained, and the building old school and authentic...More

Nice pool but a little small! Overall it's a nice day out with the kids and safe for all! With about 5 life guards on duty and a family ticket for £18 (2 adults and 3kids) superb value for money!

This pool is great if you want an early morning swim (7-9am), however in the height of the Summer it is bedlam! The pool is very cold and the concrete flooring is a Health & Safety nightmare so be careful and don't run. There is...More

Morning swim in the fog. Just a handful of swimmers so peaceful and tranquil - apart from the squeals from us as we entered the chilly December water. The poolside sauna is genius!

No not really it’s a sun trap there...if you sit by the cafe area they have umbrellas there but you can take your own umbrella if you wish.
