London Fields Lido

Why locals recommend it
It’s in trendy Hackney, heated, and open all year until 9 pm—no wonder this 50m pool wonder is so popular. Queues can stretch round the block in summer. The pool itself is a glory in any season, but for me it has a special magic on floodlit winter nights, when steam rises off the water into the darkness. The pool is an outdoor swimming success story. It was saved from demolition by a dedicated 18-year campaign and reopened in 2006. There’s a café, with more reasonable prices than many others in the area, and a large sunbathing area too.
Tips from locals
If you fancy a swim, the London Fields lido is one of the only public outdoor heated swimming pools in London. Very refreshing in the city.
One of the most happening parks in London and one of the only places you can BBQ in the park. It's very social in summer and has a great, young atmosphere, especially on the weekends
Great for a swim in the summer but is also heated if you want to use it in the Winter
Beautiful park. Great place to hang out with friends on the weekends, or even a sunny evening midweek.
Fantastic and Respectful Dog Walkers, family friendly, students. A real cosmopolitan rich area.

“Great place to come for a walk. Visit the farmers market on Sundays. Sit by the lake or wander along the canal looking at the colourful canal boats. There is also a little coffee and brunch place by the lake and the park is surrounded by some great pubs if you’re in the mood for a pint or a Sunday roast. Both sides of the park also have fantastic play areas for kids. ”
