Swimming in Hampstead Heath's historic ponds is one of those things all Londoners must do. Gloriously old fashioned there are 3 ponds: The Men's Pond, Ladies' Pond (for single sex swimming) and the Mixed Pond. All three pools are unsuitable for children under 8, but older children (accompanied) will love it. The ponds are chilly even in summer but it's probably the closest to a natural swim as you'll find in London.
