Opening times at Tooting Bec Lido

The Club holds its races at 9.30am every Sunday and Bank Holiday throughout the year, when swimming will be suspended for a short while. Please plan you visit accordingly.

Disabled access

There is:

  • A disabled toilet and shower, accessible with a radar key – one is held by the lifeguards
  • A hoist which enables people with disabilities to get in and out of the pool with the assistance of the lifeguards
  • Disabled car parking spaces but it should be noted that the path from the car park to the Lido entrance (approx 100 yards) is rather uneven due to tree roots.
