Why locals recommend it
It’s in trendy Hackney, heated, and open all year until 9 pm—no wonder this 50m pool wonder is so popular. Queues can stretch round the block in summer. The pool itself is a glory in any season, but for me it has a special magic on floodlit winter nights, when steam rises off the water into the darkness. The pool is an outdoor swimming success story. It was saved from demolition by a dedicated 18-year campaign and reopened in 2006. There’s a café, with more reasonable prices than many others in the area, and a large sunbathing area too.

One of the most happening parks in London and one of the only places you can BBQ in the park. It's very social in summer and has a great, young atmosphere, especially on the weekends

Beautiful park. Great place to hang out with friends on the weekends, or even a sunny evening midweek.
