View all copies of this ISBN edition:

A Guide to London s greatest swimming venues from the Olympic Aquatic Centre to London s best kept secret swimming lidos.

London is a city built on water, and is built for swimmers. Whether it is the early morning bathers in the Serpentine, and the Christmas Day Club at Hampstead Heath, or the children jumping in and out of Tooting Lido, wherever you step in the city you are rarely more than a paddle away from someone swimming and somewhere to swim.

Swimming London is a guide, celebration and history of the swimming spots of London, both functioning and derelict, and will appeal to anyone who wants to swim there themselves, or learn about the people and peculiarities of those who take the water in one of the busiest cities in the world. It will also be a unique perspective on London since by going for a swim in all these places you will also get a full sense of London s architectural history, social history, natural history and human variety.
