Brockwell Lido

Apparently known locally as Brixton’s Beach, Brockwell Lido is nestled in the corner of beautiful Brockwell Park: a much loved local greenspace for nearly 80 years.

The nicely heated full Olympic size (that’s 50m!) pool is surrounded by a handsome Grade II listed art deco building that’s actually hiding a super modern gym and studios: worth knowing if you’ve got teens along! It’s also worth noting that the sessions are split into Lane Swimming and Open Swimming only, with no regular sessions dedicated to families or water toys.
