Head here for some serious lengths, or widths! The pool is 100yards (92m) long. Don't be put off though as there are swimmers of all abilities here and you have to see it to believe it. Great on a summer's day.

Went to have swim as it is the largest pool in the UK if not the planet. It has a certain character of faded grandeur and a good swimming test, as no stopping for 100 yds. Beware the water is cold, actually very cold! Nice...More

In London for a few days and decided to stop off here for an early morning swim. Very peaceful and quiet. The water was cold but after a couple of lengths if the 90 metre pool it didn't seem so cold anymore. Would certainly recommend.

Perfect place to unwind, relax and chill. Can get busy but expected in this little oasis in south London. Not quite as good as the one in my hometown though :)

Was really surprised, was much better than I thought. Is much better than the lido in brockwell park because it is much bigger there is more space to swim. The water was really nice. I saw reviews saying the water was cool but it was...More

Can get pretty busy around the pool area but at 91 metres long there is plenty space in the pool to 'chill'...water temperature around 20degrees. At one side the serious swimmers, wets suits on, cruise up and down. At the other end the crazy kids...More

Would not recommend anyone to eat here. Food is disgusting and the two men running it are rude! I asked for a chicken SALAD (the healthiest thing I could find on the menu) and the chicken was fried in oil that looked like it hasn't...More
