Risk booking a swim in the King's Cross pond

This time last week - having bought a ticket - your author trekked all the way to the new King's Cross man-made natural swimming pond for a lunchtime swim, only to be told on arrival that there was no swimming that day after all due to poor water quality. Though a refund has not been forthcoming, and the pond website was no longer working at the time of writing, those who have managed to take a dip insist it is worth the risk.

The 40 metre chemical-free pond is a temporary construction at the heart of the King's Cross construction site, and if you can manage to secure a booking, are lucky enough to be allowed to fulfil your booking and enjoy swimming in full view of a building site and a public viewing platform it's a great setting to do so, open weekdays from 6am - dusk and weekends from 8am - dusk. Tickets are£3.50 - £6.50 depending on time.
