Pools on the ParkRichmond has more green space than any other London borough; a hike around the great park is the best way to get away from it all without leaving the city and, on a hot summer's day you can't beat a dip in the Pools on the Park. The park it refers to is the famous Old Deer Park which makes for a superb back-drop to your breaststroke. The Grade II listed lido, built in the 1960s was upgraded in the 1990s and now includes a first floor dance studio in what was the original foyer area. At the same time, the original slipper baths were also re-opened. The term 'slipper' was coined back in Victorian times when modesty prevailed and, in an attempt in hide their privates, people would drape bath-towels over the bath, transforming it into what looked like a giant slipper. This lovely lido is conveniently close to Richmond Railway Station and on a summer's evening Richmond's cafe culture can feel like a world away from the sticky city centre. Its open late (until at least 8pm on weekdays, some days even later) so it's perfect for a post-work dip on sultry summer nights. Towards the end of the season do watch out for the autumnal leaves which can be whipped up and swept onto the water.
