London Fields lido is open again!

London Fields Lido is a much-loved pool in the heart of East London that has always provided an urban haven for city dwellers in the summer. The outdoor pool here is legendary and has been a draw for everyone, from fitness fanatics to those simply looking for somewhere to cool off. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, London Fields Lido - like many other leisure facilities - was forced to close earlier this year. However, it reopened in July and is now operating at a slightly reduced service but with all of the sense of community and fun that it has always been able to offer.

Why we love the London Fields Lido

The pool here was the first floodlit 50m heated outdoor pool in London and is typically open whatever the weather. It's a great place to go for fitness - there are usually 4 lanes available for fitness swimming - and also to just be part of the local community. Swimming is fantastic exercise whatever your age. It's great for getting your heart rate up but doesn't come with the same impact stress as some other exercises such as running. It tones muscles and helps with weight as well as helping to maintain healthy heart and lungs. For many of us, lockdown was a time in which it was easy to become lethargic and let fitness levels slip so the reopening of the Lido is a great opportunity to get back to it.

How can you visit the London Fields Lido today?

While the pool itself is open, the café at the Lido and the changing rooms are not currently available so you'll need to factor that in to your visit. As a result of the requirements for social distancing and ensuring that everyone remains safe during the pandemic, you'll need to book your time at the London Fields Lido and you'll be allocated a slot. These slots are designed to ensure that you can arrive safely, without contact with others at the Lido, to enjoy the facility safely, change and leave without breaching COVID-19 rules. Although the facilities are currently open it's important to note that if government guidance changes they could be closed at any time so make sure you stay on top of the situation before you go ahead and visit.

Reasons to visit London Fields Lido

  • Get some post-lockdown exercise
  • Take up a new sport if you weren't much of a swimmer before
  • Enjoy the outdoor swimming experience
  • Surround yourself with other happy (socially distanced) swimmers
  • Re-introduce a little normality into your schedule
  • Get out of the house and into the water if you're currently working from home

As local East London letting agents we're over the moon to see the London Fields Lido open again and hope it stays this way for the foreseeable future.


Residential lettings
We pride ourselves on being genuine industry experts, providing a positive experience, from enquiry to after care. Storeys focuses exclusively on lettings, and we value properties, we don’t just list them. Knowledge and innovation mean we can be competitive on costs while also delivering an individually tailored service.
Property management
Storeys is a bespoke offering based on the fundamental principle of value for money – we want happy customers. Paperless tech and eSigning deliver efficiency and convenience, no high street office minimises costs. The result is a streamlined service nimble enough to tailor what we do to suit your needs.
Aesthetics, natural light, building quality, and overall finish – these aren’t ‘extras’ in a Storeys valuation, they’re as much a part of the process as size, condition and location. We look at individual property potential, not generic criteria. Factors like space for modern living arrangements, such as flexible working, are incorporated too. Our valuations are all the more accurate and successful for it. There is a perfect tenant for every property if you know how to find them.
Short-term lettings
Providing value for tenants and continuity for landlords, Storeys short-term lets run from 4 weeks to 6 months. We work with major London relocation teams and a global contacts network to match international tenants to perfect London properties.
Vacant property Management
We can manage your vacant property in-between tenancies or refurbishment, giving you peace of mind that the property is being looked after and inspected on a regular basis.
Superior Marketing
There is just no comparison between static photos and VR when it comes to property marketing. VR allows tenants to do a virtual walk around and get a realistic feel for the property - their expectations are grounded in reality, and properly managed. This makes VR a very effective tool, not just for generating interest and viewings but also converting those to offers. That’s why we partner with VRPM to create a virtual reality perspective for every property we handle.
Airbnb Management
We can manage your Airbnb account and make sure each booking runs smoothly, keys are always available for handover and the property is ready for the next occupation. This can run very well alongside our short-term corporate letting service.
Rent Protection
If your tenant defaults on the rent, Storeys have you covered. We also cover your legal expsenses and pay you rental income if your property is vacant whilst we remarket for new tenants. Don’t worry Storeys have your back.*ask a member of the team for more info. This service is included for every Storeys managed property.
