Experience an invigorating open-air dip in the heart of London at Kings Cross Pond Club. The freshwater, chemical-free, unheated pool gets quite chilly in the cool English climate, but after a little acclimatization, most visitors find the water quite refreshing. After swimming lengths in the 40 m (131 ft) bean-shaped pool lined with reeds and plants, relax on a poolside sun lounger, or ascend the viewing platform to admire the green oasis surrounded by modern developments and construction sites. Swimming sessions must be booked in advance via the pool's website.

Environment around the pond was clean and well managed. All the construction work going on around was interesting to see, but if you're looking for tranquillity, you need to look elsewhere.
