Swimming Pools in London


The weather has been lovely recently and the height of summer is almost upon us. Did you know London has many wonderful swimming pools and sports centres that you can take advantage of, at very competitive prices? Here are some of my favourites, all tried and tested!

London Aquatics Centre ( Stratford- East London)
A truly wonderful and awe-inspiring state-of-the-art centre, this is the place where the aquatic sports of the London 2012 Olympics took place.  With two massive swimming pools, showers, changing facilities and prices starting at £4.95 per session, there is no reason not to visit it! Only 20 minutes away from Tti by the London Overground.

London Fields Lido ( Cambridge Heath, East London)
THE place to see and be seen this summer! This wonderful open-air warm-water swimming pool is a very popular spot for the trendy locals of East London. The prices start at £4.85 per swimming session, and after that, you can have a picnic in the wonderful London Fields park, where the Lido is located.  Or why not visit Broadway market? Whichever you decide to do, make sure you do not pass this swimming pool! And…it is open whatever the weather!

Hampstead Heath swimming ponds ( Kentish Town – North London)
Located a few minutes away from Tti by public transport, Hampstead Heath’s swimming ponds were originally dammed-off clay pits. Three pools are open, to ladies, men and mixed groups (including accompanied children aged eight-15, at the lifeguards’ discretion).
The entry price is only £2.00, and as they are natural open-air swimming pools,  even in the summer the water is chilly, but with good luck the summer in London will be hot enough for you to enjoy them!
