Brockwell Lido was designed by HA Rowbotham and TL Smithson of the London County Council's Parks Department to replace Brockwell Park bathing pond and is almost identical in design to the Victoria Park Lido. It opened in July 1937.
The lido closed in 1990 due to cost-saving measures by Lambeth Borough Council. A Brockwell Lido Users group was established to lobby for re-opening. The lido management was put out for tender and two former council employees won the contract and reopened the lido in 1994.
Lucy Blakstad's "The Lido" was filmed at Brockwell Lido in 1995.
In 2003 it was classed as a Grade II listed building.
It has recently had a gym added to the building.
