Excellent venue, huge pool, lots of space in the water. I always feel they need to jet wash the paving tho I get filthy feet just walking to the pool then 'wash them' as I get in. Bizarre!

i feel so lucky to be living near the lido. However could do with some work. Not enough staff on, kids pool not opens until 10am, which then adds lots of families to the lines outside. Toilets can do with a little cleaning

I love Tooting Bec Lido. It is wonderful large, deep and calming place (when kid's are still at school). It's a wonderful place to cool down in the summer (especially after a long day in the office). Best times to go are during the day...More
