As soon as the sun comes out the people come out in force too. But many of them just seem to sit at the side of the pool rather than actually getting in!!

Head here for some serious lengths, or widths! The pool is 100yards (92m) long. Don't be put off though as there are swimmers of all abilities here and you have to see it to believe it. Great on a summer's day.

Went to have swim as it is the largest pool in the UK if not the planet. It has a certain character of faded grandeur and a good swimming test, as no stopping for 100 yds.
Beware the water is cold, actually very cold!
Nice cafe and very friendly people. Worth a visit if you are a keen swimmer.

In London for a few days and decided to stop off here for an early morning swim. Very peaceful and quiet. The water was cold but after a couple of lengths if the 90 metre pool it didn't seem so cold anymore. Would certainly recommend.

I'm an all-year swimmer here. But why the terrible decision to create a smoking zone at the deep end in the poolsidel area? Smokers used to have to go out of the side gate to the left of the deep end. Now they are on the right, so the last third of every length you're smelling and breathing in tobacco smoke. Disgusting! Why on earth is smoking allowed in the pool at all?
