Swimming pools alexpink 19 September 2010 Health & Fitness looking for a good swimming pool in the area, any recommendations? 8 Comments yeahhackney 19 September 2010, 6:27 pm Have you checked out the London Fields Lido? yeahhackney 19 September 2010, 7:48 pm Does Kings Hall have one? alexpink 20 September 2010, 12:10 pm I popped down to Kings Hall this morning but it was school swimming, so I changed direction to London Fields Lido instead. Its a nice pool, probably one of the best public pools I’ve been too. A big fuck yeah hackney thumbs up for the Lido 🙂 catfunt 20 September 2010, 4:10 pm Lido is great. Not Hackney but the pool at York Hall is 33 metres, very warm and they have a kids pool as well. I did adult classes there and they were pretty good. Finding out about the classes was a nightmare as the reception staff were rubbish. alexpink 24 September 2010, 3:57 pm Lido is surprisingly good, I was very impressed. Not sure how much I’ll fancy it as the weather deteriorates though! In which case I might have to check out York Hall, thanks for the suggestion. lucypearceox 24 September 2010, 11:17 pm Usually I’m a positive kinda person, but I wouldn’t recommend the Kings Hall Hackney. A lot of floating hair the once I was there! The lido is tops, and I’ll have to check out York Hall with catfunt’s recommendation. hackneye 27 September 2010, 3:28 pm If you’re near the Overground, Cally Pool really isn’t bad. Just a 5 min (downhill) walk from Caledonian Road Over station. kuxi 29 September 2010, 11:46 am britannia leisure centre have just had a big refurb, new pool, changing rooms etc. going to try it out this week. will report back.
