Summer Swimming

As the heat wave is well and truly underway, we wanted to share some of the best natural lidos in and around London to cool off this summer.

BECKENHAM PLACE PARK LAKE

The lake at Beckenham Place Park, Bromley, is London’s newest wild swimming lake.  The lake offers swimming, and boat hire, with lifeguards to oversee.

HAMPSTEAD HEATH SWIMMING

There are three ponds to enjoy at Hampstead Heath – women’s ponds, men’s ponds and the mixed ponds. It’s the only open water swimming facility in the UK that is open to the public all year round.

PARLIAMENT HILL LIDO, HAMPSTEAD HEATH

If you’re not quite ready for open water swimming, Parliament Hill Lido is an uncovered and unheated swimming pool open every day of the year.
One of London’s two outdoor heated pools, Charlton Lido is Olympic sized!  There is also a warmer, smaller, shallow pool with ledges for little ones to sit on. 

CHARLTON LIDO

One of London’s two outdoor heated pools, Charlton Lido is Olympic sized!  There is also a warmer, smaller, shallow pool with ledges for little ones to sit on.

SERPENTINE LIDO

Open on weekends throughout May and every day from June to September, the Serpentine Lido and its accompanying paddling pool are great for both adults and children.
