East London’s Heated, Olympic Size Outdoor Pool • London Fields Lido

London Fields Lido

Hackney’s swimmers can finally take a dip in the glorious London Fields Lido.

The 50 metre outdoor swimming pool was closed at short notice back in early April, after problems were found with the tile lining. Slated to open in the summer, London Fields Lido has finally re-opened a year later! [Header photo: Peter Smith]

And best of all: it’s heated! Set to a temperature of 25℃, it’s perfect for a refreshing swim year-round, whatever the weather. Like these hardy souls taking a January morning dip:

Plus, during the long winter nights, the lido is floodlit, so you can backstroke beneath the stars. (Not that you’ll be able to see ’em.)

While contractors have been repairing the pool itself, they’ve also taken the opportunity to refurbish the changing rooms and other facilities during the closure… Check on their website for details.
