If you love outdoor swimming like I love outdoor swimming then this is the place for you! It is a beautiful place with the multicoloured changing doors and the grassy area to relax on post swim. And the pool is massive, meaning that even when busy you can still find an area to call your own. For me the only downside is that there are no lockers for public use, the desk will take your valuables...more

If you do go, don't go on a weekend or go at 5pm on the weekday.

THey should adopt the American mentality and have an adult 15 minutes every hour. THe kids have to get out and only adults can get in.

imagine that!!more

It can get busy as...more

Tooting bec Lido is a great place to go in the summer, it's a really good place to meet friends, have a picnic and cool off.

It's kind of old fashioned but in a nice way. The pool is huge, I think it must be 50 metres and I think there might be a kids pool too.

It opens as soon as the weather starts heating up (the pool is not heated) so some time around easter. I think it shuts each day...more
