NEED A GUIDE FOR WHERE TO SWIM IN LONDON?
Then look no further.
MAP OF POOLS
That link above takes you to a map. The map has a dot on it for every pool I've swum in and reviewed. If you click on the dot, it takes you to my review. It's a handy guide to some of the best places to swim in London, and some of the worst. These are all public pools.
THIS link - Swimming London - takes you to the page on Hive.co.uk for my book, which is called, surprisingly, Swimming London. The book is a guide to the best 50 places to swim in London. It all makes sense when you think about it.
The book is mostly public spaces. Lakes, bits of the river, lidos and indoor pools. There are a couple of examples of great private pools, so we can press our noses to the glass in wonder. It's already out of date, such is the nature of these things. Charlton Lido, for instance, is newly re-vamped and now on my Top 5 of London pools.
And if you're interested in what I've written for the Guardian about swimming, all the pieces are here.
Hope this all helps you find a great place to swim in London.
