Swim outside in Hackney

For just £4, in the heart of Hackney you can swim in a heated outdoor pool which has been refurbished to a high standard and deserves to be enjoyed.

London Fields Lido is 50m x 17m and was saved from the bulldozer in 1990, earmarked for rebuilding in 2004 and finished in 2007.

It's another ace newish facility that your author hopes survives the credit crunch, and continues to receive the funding it needs.

The pool is open Monday-Friday, 6.30am-8.00pm and weekends 8.00am-6.00pm. Worth also noting that men aren't allowed from 7.00pm-8.00pm on Tuesdays.
