London's frenetic cityscape is home to a surprising number of large and inviting swimming pools. And the best of these can be found in five-star hotels.
From The Berkeley's rooftop mosaic-tiled design overlooking Hyde Park to The Rembrandt's Romanesque affair, these venues offer a level of luxury and indulgence you just won't find at your local leisure centre.
This ambiance comes at a considerable price for non-hotel guests, but it may be worth paying on the odd occasion for the space and calm to swim in, plus extras such as massage jets, scented candles and fluffy white dressing gowns.
Treat yourself to our pick of London's most indulgent pools, with a few more budget-friendly options thrown in too, for good measure.
