More about the Hampstead Heath Swimming Ponds

Since as early as 1860, and probably before, many hardy London folk have taken a dip before work in one of three wooded ponds on Hampstead Heath. It's a century-old tradition that becomes wonderfully welcome when things hot up in the summer months. However swimming was not the original intention for the ponds; the much-loved tarns of water began as a string of reservoirs which were originally established to supply London with water. (1) The Highgate Men's Pond enjoys a secluded sylvan spot (Highgate, London NW3, access is via Millfield Lane, N6; Tel: 0207 485 4491). In the fenced enclosure nudity is de rigeur amongst the regulars - the serious swimmers, chess players, weight-lifters, readers and sunbathers for whom this is a sort of club. Out on the springboards and in the water, costumes are required. In the 1930s the Highgate Diving Club used to practice dives from the ten-metre board and their Aquatic Carnivals attracted crowds of 10,000. There are no longer any high boards - a sign of these cautious times. No children under eight and those 8-15 only with an accompanying adult. (2) The Kenwood Ladies' Pond c/o Parliament Hill Park Office, Staff Yard, Highgate Road, London, NW5 1QR, Phone: 020-7485 4491 As the Ladies Pond is highest up the hill and benefits from being nearest to the natural springs in Kenwood it has by far the cleanest water. Its hidden by an expanse of sprawling foliage to hide the ladies modesty. (3) The Hampstead Mixed Pond is a heap of fun in the summer if a little on the busy side on really warm days. It's not often you can enjoy the freedom offered by the open fields in London but this really is a fertile pocket of uncultivated land, dotted with the odd hay bail, leafy avenues and shaded woods. This rolling rural park is undoubtedly one of the loveliest areas of London. The Heath's bathing ponds, shrouded underneath sweeping willow trees and lush undergrowth, are a delightful summer surprise making this a lovely spot for a slightly murky swim.

Huge thanks to you once again, I tried to find a group hotel deal online but was unable to; LondonTown really did an excellent job

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
