Swim tourism - Sunday 9th Feb

Hi all! Next date for some swim tourism is Sunday 9th Feb. I've made a poll for people to decide where they'd like to go, there's two cold water places (Hampstead ponds and Royal Docks) and two heated pools (London Fields and Hampton pool). Obviously it may end up changing, weather dependent! Come along if you can :)https://www.opinionstage.com/alexbalmer/swim-tourism-feb-9th1See More

This particular…See More
