London's Best Outdoor Lidos

Unfortunately we can't always get our swimming fix in the HotTug so we have put together a few of our favourite lidos in London that you can enjoy while the sun is out.

Parliament Hill Lido

This beautiful grade II-listed Parliament Hill Lido measures a huge 60 metres by 28 metres. Based in Hampstead Heath it is unheated so ideal for those sunny days or for the bravehearted. 

London Fields Lido

The London Fields Lido is a 50m Olympic size, heated outdoor swimming pool open all year round and located in Hackney, central London. It received a renovation a couple of years ago and now has a cafe and a large sundeck for those sunbathers. As the name states it is in London Fields, a great park that is perfect for a post swim BBQ.

Oasis Sports Centre

This sport centre is a hidden gem in the heart of West End. It's Central London's only heated outdoor pool and absolutely bliss for those lunchtime and post-work swims on muggy days in the city.

Tootling Bec Lido

At an absolutely huge 90m long, this South London pool may just be big enough to deal with the flocking Londoner needing to cool off when it hits 25 degrees. It's the countries biggest outdoor freshwater pool and while open through winter this pools isn't heated but that's what the lovely, hot HotTug is for! 

Hillingdon Outdoor Pool

This Grade ll-listed 50m, outdoor swimming pool has been restored to all it's 1930s glory with fountains at each end of the pool and shallow, heated pool for the kiddies. Around the pool there is heaps of space to lie out and a lovely cafe for snacks.
