Tooting Bec Lido
Largest Lido in Europe, since 1906 - Brad Pitt has even been.
Location: Tooting Bec Road, SW16 1RU
Description: Opened on 28 July 1906, it is the earliest purpose-built open air pool in London, and is one of the largest in Europe (300ft x 100ft)
The Lido is also home to South London Swimming Club, one of England's oldest clubs after being established in 1906. In fact races have been held at the Lido since 1908 and are still running today.
It seems the Lido can even attract Hollywood's A-List...Brad Pitt once visited Tooting Bec Lido - he was there to film scenes for the gangster film Snatch, directed by Guy Ritchie, 2000.
