Perfect for a fun day out, especially in the summer, this outdoor pool in Hackney's London Fields is one of London's last remaining lidos. It is open all year round and is, of course, heated. Why not grab lunch from either one of their two cafes after an exciting dip?!

"'Pig swinging' became a popular sport in the 1700s after it was invented when pigs were walked from London Fields to Smithfield Market. It involved greasing their tails, swinging them round their heads and hurling them to see who could throw them the furthest."

The takeover of the Overground at Hackney Central has been fantastic for the local area - there's proposals for Crossrail 2 at this station too!

About London Fields

London Fields is a park and the name of an area of London, situated in the eastern borough of Hackney. The park itself was first recorded in 1540. At this time it was common ground and was used by drovers to pasture their livestock before taking them to market in London. London Fields is just over 31 acres (13 ha) in extent. It is 4.2 miles (6.8 km) north-east of Charing Cross. London Fields sports a cricket pitch, lido, grass areas, a small BMX track, tennis courts, a table tennis table and two children's play areas. A much-used cycle path runs from the Pub on the Park to Broadway Market.
