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.
It has recently had a gym added to the building.
In 2012 the 'Brockwell Icicles' winter swimming group reformed and campaigned for all year round swimming... the current operator Fusion agreed and the Lido is now open 7 days a week all year for those who enjoy cold water swimmers. (Membership is not required a new cold water swimmers can turn up and pay on the day)
The Lido Café is an attached café/restaurant looking onto the pool.
