Great pool - really big and not too busy. Also has plenty of space around the pool for sunbathing. The water is, however, very cold! Was 13 degrees when we visited in May

As soon as the sun comes out the people come out in force too. But many of them just seem to sit at the side of the pool rather than actually getting in!!

Head here for some serious lengths, or widths! The pool is 100yards (92m) long. Don't be put off though as there are swimmers of all abilities here and you have to see it to believe it. Great on a summer's day.

In London for a few days and decided to stop off here for an early morning swim. Very peaceful and quiet. The water was cold but after a couple of lengths if the 90 metre pool it didn't seem so cold anymore. Would certainly recommend.

I'm an all-year swimmer here. But why the terrible decision to create a smoking zone at the deep end in the poolsidel area? Smokers used to have to go out of the side gate to the left of the deep end. Now they are on...More

Perfect place to unwind, relax and chill. Can get busy but expected in this little oasis in south London. Not quite as good as the one in my hometown though :)
