Enjoy a bracing open-air swim at Tooting Bec Lido, among the largest swimming pools in the UK. An earthen ramp covered in bird-filled trees surrounds the 91.5 m (300 ft) by 30 m (99 ft) pool, forming a green and turquoise oasis in the midst of London's urban sprawl. After a refreshing swim in the unheated water, enjoy a bite to eat at the cafe, which offers a range of breakfast, lunch, and snack options, as well as hot and cold drinks.

  • Open air swimming pool, lots of space to sunbathe if the sun's out. Wish for sunshine or brave the british weather, but really pleased I visited and felt like a step back in time.
  • It's a nice lido with a superbly loooolong pool but you just wonder how wonderful this really would be with more amenities say a proper sauna. Water is cold you've been warned
  • I love it here, huge pool, nice little cafe, lots of space around the sides for sitting etc. The one downside is the amount of unattended children particularly at the deep end. I thought the pool had a rule for children under 8 to be supervised at all times and a maximum of two children per adult. This need to be enforced so the serious swimmers can have some peace.
  • Nice open door pool, plenty of room for a swim or just to lay in the sun. Would definitely recommend.
  • Huge well maintained outdoor pool - love it!
