Really love the Lido. Little cafe to buy some chips. Very large pool. Little pool for kids. Not going to lie the water is freezing. I come here only when it’s boiling outside so then you ready to take a cold dip. Gone are the days when you …

Came here to take my child for baby gym. Premises are clean. Staffs were very friendly. We reached when there was already a session going on. They sanitised everything for the next session. Children were guided with safety precautions.

This is my first year swimming in the Tooting Lido, after 9 years living in the area. It takes some time to get used to the water temperature, the benefits of swimming daily in colder temperatures is the main reason I go… Now that the …

With its 91.44mt length, Tooting Bec Lido is the biggest outdoor swimming pool in the UK. There are plenty of changing cubicles, plus showers and toilets. There is a coffee shop and picnic tables to enjoy a coffee on a sunny day. Entrance …

Great for winter swims with a sauna open to members in the coldest months. Hot summer days can lead to big queues so do get there as early as possible (6am) if you are planning on swimming. Excellent yoga classes also available in the pavilion for both members and non members.

Great day out with the kid! Please note that you can’t join your friends in the queue. There’s security checking it along the line and you will all have to move to the back of the line if you disagree with the rule. Only join the queue when the whole party is there. loved the fact that there’s a green area.

This South London oasis just gets better with every hot summer 🔥.
Get there early (the queues run to >2 hrs by midday) and mix it up with the locals. This is the melting pot that only the UK’s capital city can cook up; 9 …

I have lived in the Tooting area for my whole life and not once have I ever visited Tooting Bec Lido. Too be honest, I was amazed with the size of the lido. Definitely worth the visit if the weather is basking in warm weather. When we attended, believe the entrance fee was approx £7.

Nice tree area where you can sunbathe and enjoy. The pool was clean and even though it was packed it was comfortable to be there. Water was a bit too cold for my taste.

Lovely relaxed place to spend an afternoon. Cafe has a good combination of classic pool café options (Ice creams, hot dogs, hot chocolate) and more expensive treats like halloumi kebabs. Good sun trap.

It’s a really large outdoor swimming pool, which is well worth a visit on a hot Summer’s day. You can book online in advance, to avoid any disappointment, as there are a limited number of places available for each session. The water isn’t …

Great spot in London. Looking forward to returning! Would only say the out door changing rooms need a good make over. Full of spider webs and very dark, uncomfortable to get changed in after a gorgeous swim. Would be amazing if they added a few loungers too but overall 7/10 really happy day out

Great place. It should be made clear that when busy you will have to queue to get back into the small pool. I had wet children who wanted to get back in after a drink break and we needed up waiting for 20 mins to get in as too many were in the pool. You also can’t leave anything poolside so no water bottles.

We really liked it. The pictures on Google don’t show it but there’s a cute little kids pool and around it there are trees and grass . The kids love playing in the water. The cafe staff are lovely and there are also changing facilities for the whole family. The adult pool is huge and looks real fun.

Nice pool, but queued for 1.5h plus to find one!!! person selling entry tickets. I don’t understand why they don’t hire more people on a hot day when long queues are to be expected

Been here before pandemics and loved it. They’ve reopened with bookings only. The app to book is terrible and took about an hour to manage it (constant server errors). If booking was smooth it would defo be a 5!

Great place to swim or just cool down (think heat waves). Main pool is huge, 90x30m, depth from 0.9 to 2.1m. You’ll need for sure own towels (and a padlock if you want to use the lockers). There is shade, both on pavement and grass (under …

Im sort of amazed people have rated this lido so favourably. To be absolutely blunt, this lido is really dirty. Not just the pool, but the changing rooms are disgusting. At £8 a pop I’d think you could stretch the budget to clean the place

If you’re happy swimming in what feels like an ice bath and paying £4 for an ice cream, this is the place for you. Nice spot for a hot summers day but probably not worth £8.

Great outdoor swimming spot. Try avoid peak times if you want a relaxed swim. Travel light as there aren’t lockable lockers (unless you bring your own padlocks) however don’t let that discourage you from visiting, will be going again for a morning swim!

Tooting Bec Lido is a fantastic place – unheated but always swimmable. Now only open for members of South London Swimming Club until next open to the public – see publicity for any closure for works being done and subsequent reopening.

As I live only 10 minutes from there we used to go all day many summer days before the pandemic. However last week one of my friends who also used to go often told me about the booking system and breaks midday and midd afternoon and I can say that we will not be back… Thats not sensible…

Great for swimming outdoors quite tricky when booking a slot online when trying to find the page. The covid restrictions put on place really took the joy out of swimming here, going round in clockwise circles gets a little tiresome would like to see on a warmer day when the water is warmer.

Very easy and quick to get access. Pool temperature was well maintained. On a sunny day, it will be worth spending whole day cause you can take break from the pool, have some snacks or coffee, read books sitting on the bench nearby and jump on the pool again. It’s fun.

Fantastic day out with the kiddos. A shame the Mr Whippy van charged £4.50 for a cone and £2 for a Calypo!!! Daylight robbery. Unnecessary to rip off a captive audience just because you can.

The pool was freezing even though it was 24°c outside. Despite this we had fun and did end up swimming! They have free drinking water, refillable from the bathroom and labelled. The cafe is also nice but a little bit pricey. The rates as a student were very fair (£4.40~)

Great experience swimming in the sunshine. Pool was quite busy at 8am on a Monday. Entry for just a swim is quite expensive (£7.50) when not using Lido for the full day. No lockers for bags is a bit of a concern whilst swimming. However I will be going back and would recommend to anyone else whilst it’s sunny!

Awesome pool, well staffed and not too busy (I visited weekday afternoon). Facilities great including cafe. Cards taken on entry and in cafe. 91.5m long by about 30m wide, plenty of space for a proper swim and the kids/families to have a splash. Great spot.

A wonderful huge pool with separate paddling pool for little ones. There is a cafe to keep you going all day. Not a lot of space for sunbathing and it does get busy in the sun, so get there early. Expect a queue. The water is not heated but it was 21 degrees at 8am when we went.

A fantastic experience. This outdoor pool is cooled down to complicate the workout. The swim lane is longer than usual. Those who not only go for sunbathing in the outdoor pool, but also to train should not miss this place under any circumstances. Of course, don’t forget swimming trunks!
