The Berkley Knightsbridge
Rooftop pools are hard to come by in London, and those that are available are usually only open to members or guests. Which is why The Berkley is just a little bit special. Non-guests are welcome at a price of £150 for the day. The price includes access to the pool (which is great for indoor and outdoor swimming thanks to a retractable roof), the secret garden (it's a secret so that's all we're telling you) and the Bamford Haybarn spa. There is also a state of the art gym available for your use.
If you're not thinking about being healthy, the rooftop bar is a great place to go to for cocktails during sunset or in the hot afternoon.
