Testing the Watering Holes of Hampstead

Great to see some new faces at our annual trek round Hampstead Heath on Sunday 19th August. Yet again we found a new route which this year included a pub for lunch thanks to Sue’s recommendation.

Starting at sister Lido Parliament Hill Fields for a refreshing 18·8°C plunge followed by some very tasty coffee and pastries. Maybe they have been taking some hints from our Brockwell Cafe menu? Then on to the mixed ponds at a delicious 19·5° C, quick width and then changing in their rather basic changing rooms.

Pub lunch at the Freemason Arms for a well earned libation before heading across the Heath to the Mens and Ladies Ponds. Lovely 20·1°C swim in the sunshine and then back home. A great day.
