The ladies bathing pond at Hampstead Heath is great. It's a bit too cold to swim at this time of year but it was warm enough to do some sunbathing.

While exploring the area around Hampstead Heath and you will discover the Highgate Ponds where you can supposedly swim year round but I'm sure it is best in the warm weather.

The men's pond is a lovely place to swim & socialise with a mixed & quirky crowd. Best on a sunny days at the beginning and end of summer when the water is cooler and the crowds stay away. Unique.
