London Hit List #5: The Serpentine Lido. not just any ordinary swimming pool. If you're more of the adventurous kind and you want to cool off a bit, do check out this place.
The Serpentine Lido isn’t your typical outdoor swimming pool; it is located in the Serpentine Lake in London’s famous Hyde Park. As long as you don’t mind encountering the occasional duck or swan it is a fantastic place to swim!
