The world’s first transparent Sky Pool is about to open in London next month.
Swimmers will be literally floating in air, 10 storeys up in the pool which straddles two exclusive apartment blocks next to the US Embassy in Nine Elms, south London.
The highly-anticipated opening will be held on Wednesday May 19 and feature radio and TV host Roman Kemp.
The opening, which has been delayed by Covid, will set the seal on an ambitious engineering project which involved transporting the acrylic aquarium-style pool nearly 5,000 miles from the factory in Colorado where it was made.
Swimmers will be able to enjoy views across central London while completing lengths between the buildings in the new residential neighborhood in Nine Elms, Vauxhall.
Suspended 35 metres above the ground, the iconic structure will offer views of the House of Parliament, the London Eye and London’s city skyline.
The first of its kind and entirely transparent, the 25m-long, 5m-wide and 3m-deep infinity pool, is set to become the most exclusive venue to take a dip in Britain.
The water in it alone weighs around 375 tonnes.
