Why locals recommend it
It’s in trendy Hackney, heated, and open all year until 9 pm—no wonder this 50m pool wonder is so popular. Queues can stretch round the block in summer. The pool itself is a glory in any season, but for me it has a special magic on floodlit winter nights, when steam rises off the water into the darkness. The pool is an outdoor swimming success story. It was saved from demolition by a dedicated 18-year campaign and reopened in 2006. There’s a café, with more reasonable prices than many others in the area, and a large sunbathing area too.

London Fields Lido is one of London's central outdoor swimming pools. It's a great place to go and really peaceful early in the morning.

The only open air 50 m 'Heated' swimming pool in London. GO early morning or during week days to avoid queues. Fabulous experience to be in water with the stars stretched out or with views to London sky. Occasionally you may even want to sunbathe on its paved surroundings, but is very loved by…

Market
“Must see. East London’s vibrant Sunday flower market is a local favourite. Here, you can barter with market stall merchants for everything from houseplants and fresh bouquets to succulents and seeds. Columbia Road is well worth a visit from Monday to Saturday, too: the lack of Sunday crowds leaves you free to wander the street’s many independent businesses, including art galleries, antique stores, homeware boutiques and even an old-school sweet shop. Sun: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm”
