Rooftop pools may not at the top of your list when booking a hotel in London, but in the summer, London can hit the early 30’s and what could be better than splashing about in a the sunshine on the roof of a luxury hotel?
This rooftop pool is on the seventh floor of the luxury Berkley hotel, located just up the road from Harrods in Knightsbridge. This is the only centrally located London hotel with a rooftop pool. Although the pool is slap bang in the centre of London, the ambiance feels more like one of Bath’s historic spas. Roman-esque pillars and mosaic detailing tiled in iridescent white and gold, give the pool a luxury ambiance which you will appreciate as you notch up some laps. The poolside loungers have views across the city and tables and chairs are perfectly placed for you to savour every fine bite and tipple from the spa menu.
Members and hotel guests can use pool at Shoreditch House in East London, (pictured above). Shoreditch House describes itself as a members club with rooms in a converted east London warehouse and is a short tube ride from central London and all the attractions. Lounge on padded red and white loungers which look out over the London skyline, or take a dip in this rather trendy, urban rooftop pool.
Opening in the spring in the former Midland Bank headquarters in the City of London, will be a new flagship 5-star hotel from the Soho House group. The Ned hotel gets its name from the eminent architect who designed the building and has been redesigned using 1930’s glamour inspired by the transatlantic ocean liner. The highlight here is the rooftop space with swimming pool, rooftop bar and landscaped terraces. There will also be a health spa and gym and an underground bar in what used to be the safety deposit vault underneath the great banking hall. To use the pool you need to book a room or become a member.
