When the sun is shining in London there’s only one way to cool down, with a dip in one of its many open-air swimming pools. Imagine feeling like you’re on holiday every day throughout the summer with a pre-work, post, or lunchtime swim. Submerge yourself underwater with the sun on your skin and forget your daily stresses.

Well, we’ve collated a list of five fantastic, serviced office buildings where fantasy can become reality with a local lido on your doorstep.

Second Home, London Fields
London Fields Lido

With only five minutes between your desk and the London Fields Lido, you couldn’t be closer for a splash before, during or after work. Second Home is a workspace like no other with a focus on providing space for entrepreneurs, innovators, and social impact organisations. This space makes you feel like you have stepped right into the future. Boasting B Corp status, Second Home goes beyond being just office space, with facilities that tie it to the local community and even now a child friendly workspace, which allows you to bring your little one to work, and maybe to the lido with you as well.

The Office Group, Orion House
Oasis Sports Centre

Who knew that Covent Garden had a Lido?! Well apparently, it does and it’s well worth a visit. TOG’s Orion House is only a six-minute stroll through Covent Garden to the water. Orion House is one of the Prime high-rise buildings in the area and TOG have a high-end product to match. With impressive interiors, these offices boast access to views over Covent Garden and Soho, access to a roof terrace and plenty of additional lounge and breakout space. This is a prime central London office location.

General People, Expressway
Love Open Water London Royal Docks

Four times a week the Royal Docks open themselves up to open water swimming sessions and by taking space with General People just next door, you could easily be part of the action. Only having started up this year, General People offer slick and contemporary office space. With extra amenities like an onsite gym and café, this is a one stop shop work environment.

Purpose Group, Kentish Town
Hampstead Heath Swimming Ponds

As the nearest serviced office to Hampstead Heath Swimming Ponds, Purpose Group’s new building deserves a shout out. With fully customisable and inclusive spaces, this location provides offices right over Kentish Town station. With small units ranging up to 6300 sq. ft, this location can cater to all manner of requirements.

Clockwise, Wood Green
Park Road Pools and Fitness

Just a short bus ride between Clockwise and Park Road Pools and Fitness, you can get your water fix any day of the week. Clockwise offers a blend of industrial, smart and professional styled office spaces. Stunningly designed and with more onsite amenities then you can shake a stick at, this location can only be topped with views looking back out toward central London.
