Abingdon's secret Lido
  9 / 10
For some, swimming outside, with the sun in your eyes, or the rain swishing down onto the water, is a pleasure second to none. If you are that person, read on. Abingdon's Abbey Meadow outdoor pool is the one for you. It's quite old and beginning to show it, but behind that disguise is a secret that the locals try to keep to themselves. The water is warm and crystal clear (no we are not talking about Jacuzzi temperatures, but warmth suitable for a good swim, energetic or lazy). The pool is close by the Thames with River boats mooring outside the railings. Green lawns surround the pool so you can get that tan in a relaxed, natural way. And should the East wind blow, the water is still warm enough - and there are lovely hot showers afterwards.

For more information google Friends of Abbey Meadow Outdoor Pool or type in http://www.communigate.co.uk/oxford/foamop/index.phtml to find the Friends' website. We are a bunch of people passionate about outdoor swimming and we want to share that passion with you! See you there maybe?
