Tooting Bec LidoA lovely large (90m long) and hugely popular lido. Despite being the earliest purpose-built open air pool in London, continual upgrades and investment have kept Tooting Bec Lido in good shape. Recent improvements include a facelift for the foyer and a suite of jacuzzis and saunas; it was also re-sealed and re-painted a couple of years ago. To keep the youngsters entertained, there's a shallow paddling pool with toy animals for your water babies to play with. It's a lovely spot in the scenic setting of Tooting Bec Common, which is shielded from the pond by a tree-lined bank, providing a wonderful opportunity to lie out on a lazy summer day. But be warned: it can get very busy in the summer months with 2,000 visitors a day passing through. If you prefer to avoid the crowds, you can swim in peace during the less busy months from October to May by joining the South London Swimming Club who have been racing here since 1908 and bravely do so at Christmas and on New Year's Day.
