Public Meeting ~ What is the future of Haggerston Baths? – Thursday 08th October 2015



Haggerston Baths is a purpose built swimming baths completed in 1904 in the Edwardian baroque style. Subsequently the property was modernized with an extension added to the Former Laundry to the north-west. The baths were closed in 2000 and have since fallen into a state of disrepair. The property currently extends to over 3,693 sq m (39,733 sq ft Gross Internal Area and 3,406 sq m, (36,650 sq ft) Net Internal Area on a site of approximately 0.23 hectare, (0.57 acre). The property can be broadly divided into three distinct areas: Main Pool Hall, Front Entrance Building, Former Laundry.


The site is positioned between Whiston Road and Laburnum Street within the London Borough of Hackney.

Haggerston Overground Station is located less than 500m to the north-east with Hoxton Overground Station located less than 500m to the south-west. These are both on the East London Line providing access to Highbury & Islington in 8 minutes and the wider Overground network including Clapham Junction and West Croydon in South London. Old Street is a 20 minute walk providing access to Old Street Station, the Northern Line and London Underground network. The City of London is a 20 minute walk or a short bus ride away. Regents Canal runs east to west approximately 40m to the north.

Haggerston has become an increasingly popular commercial and residential area, benefiting from the significant regeneration of the wider Borough, in particular, investment into the surrounding areas of Shoreditch to the south and Dalston to the north. The location remains renowned for its creative industries and its continuing popularity with the Technology, Media and Telecommunications sectors.

The local area is renowned for its vibrancy and boasts an enviable collection of bars, art galleries, museums and other attractions all within walking distance of Haggerston Baths. Amongst many others these include, Hackney City Farm, Columbia Road Flower Market, the Geffrye Museum, London Fields and Broadway Market. Recently, the Regents Canal has become a focal point in Haggerston due to the growing collection of art galleries and artisan restaurants and cafés located along the towpath.

Additional information

The property is held Freehold by the Council.
The Council anticipates granting a long leasehold (250 year) interest in the property, subject to a requirement to bring the building into repair. The Council will also consider alternative proposals for occupational lease arrangements.

Visit ‘London Wetland Centre’ this Summer – just 10 minutes from Hammersmith


The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that saves wetlands, which are essential for life itself. Wetlands are the primary source of drinking water for people and wildlife. They also connect us with nature, and with ourselves, through beautiful landscapes and inspiring encounters with wildlife.

An urban oasis for wildlife and people, just 10 minutes from Hammersmith.  Stroll among the lakes, ponds and gardens. The café is perfect for relaxing, and kids will love the play areas.

London Wetland Centre is a beautiful wildlife reserve in the heart of the capital with scenic walkways which meander amongst lakes, ponds, meadows and gardens. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxing walk or for watching wildlife in its natural surroundings. Wandering among the flowers and trees it’s easy to believe you’re in the countryside, but from some vantage points the London skyline acts as a spectacular backdrop to this beautiful rural setting.
See the Website Link below for More info and admission prices
Take a walk through World Wetlands to see some of the most exotic ducks from around the globe and learn about the conservation work that keeps them safe from extinction. Numerous wild ducks, swans and other birds have made the Centre their home. Watch the mallard ducklings waddling after their mothers,  See baby grebes hitching a ride on their parents’ backs. Watch out for water voles feeding on the yellow flag iris and butterflies drinking from the flowers in Wild side.


At London Wetland Centre you’re never at a loss for things to do with the children. It’s a fantastic day out for kids, not just because you won’t be able to tear them away from the adventure playground and the Discovery Centre, but also because each weekend (and during school holidays) W.W.T run activities to keep them amused and inspire them about the wildlife around them.  

Explore, the outdoors adventure playground, they can swoop down the zip wires, traverse the climbing wall, investigate the giant water vole tunnels and get soaking wet in the water games!

The Discovery Centre is indoors and takes you on a journey through the wetlands of the world, from peat bogs to coral reefs. Find out which fish ‘walks’ through mangrove swamps and why the Fiddler crab has one claw bigger than the other.

See their Website for more Information : Wetland Centres London

Great For the Kids :  Be a Nature Explorer

There is Admission Cost but remember its for a good Cause and a great day out and not long before the Children are back at school! so make the most of Summer and have fun.
