London’s Sky Pool is the hottest place to cool off in the capital. Here’s what you need to know before you go.

We’re sure you’ve seen a picture of London’s Sky Pool (if not, where on earth have you been?). It took the world – and, more importantly, Instagram – by storm when it opened last year. It’s said to be the first floating pool in the world, and visiting is not for the faint hearted. If you get vertigo, look away now. Just staring at it makes us feel a little wobbly. Dying to take a dip? Here’s what you need to know.

Cleaning and maintenance contractor NJC has taken delivery of a new 42 metre Easy Lift spider lift for cleaning work at the new Embassy Gardens residential development in Nine Elms, London. The development includes the unique 25 metre glass Sky Pool which presents serious access challenges to reach the external surfaces, given its clear height of 35 metres. It requires a machine that not only offers the reach, but is also compact and relatively lightweight to fit into the limited area below.

Book Here

The Orangery booking does not include the Sky Pool Deck area, this will need to be booked separately. The Orangery allows you to bring up to four guests per resident however the Sky Pool Deck area guest restrictions on weekends and bank holidays are one guest per resident. We are unable to lift this policy as you are aware weekends and bank holidays are the busiest and fairness of use falls on our residents first before guests.
Best regards,

A swimming pool suspended 35m (115ft) above the ground and forming a bridge between two buildings has opened as part of a residential project in Nine Elms, south-west London, UK. 

Designed by HAL Architects, the 25m Sky Pool spans two buildings at the Embassy Gardens development, located opposite the new US Embassy.

The pool has transparent walls and floor, which allows passersby to observe the swimmers – and those in the pool to see the ground.

The pool is constructed in clear acrylic. The sidewalls of the pool are 180mm thick and 3.2metres deep. Its base is 360mm thick and the whole pool weighs 50 tonnes and contains a total of 150tonnes of water, 100tonnes of which is carried by the acrylic ‘bridge’.

The aquarium-style swimming pool installed floating ten storeys above ground in Vauxhall is just one indication that the huge area of industrial land beside the Thames is on the up. We have yet to hear Joe Biden’s assessment of Nine Elms — we expect it with bated breath some time after today’s inauguration — but we know full well that his predecessor Donald Trump was not a fan.

Embassy Gardens is a design-led riverside district designed to exceed the highest international standards, now regarded a global benchmark for urban renewal.

Embassy Gardens is the residential and commercial centrepiece of the Nine Elms regeneration area. Over 3 Phases Ballymore had the challenge of establishing a brand identity that evolved with the years. Australian creative agency Cornwell kick-started the project with a strategy phase that enabled the brand story to unfold and position Embassy Gardens as a new diplomatic precinct on London’s River Thames, anchored by the US and Dutch embassies. The recent campaign “We are Embassy Gardens” aligned the brand with the inspired lifestyle of the existing residents. The digital-led campaign was designed to convert these enthusiastic brand advocates into true brand ambassadors. We curated residents’ real photos into an art book and outdoor exhibition called Instant – tapping into a huge pool of existing and highly credible content. And we crafted a lifestyle book, digital strategy and immersive new website aimed at making the campaign meaningful, timely and scalable.
