Spotted Swimming in London’s Kings Road…
… Actress, cake decorator and one time Beatle-fiancé Jane Asher swimming in the council owned Victorian swimming baths behind Chelsea town hall on Kings Road.
Embracing the 1950’s aesthetic of one-piece swimsuit (no, not a monokini) coupled with a fabulous flower covered retro swim cap and full face of make up, she glided through the water with, though I hate to say it, impossible elegance. This sure is a stylish way to beat the frizz. I want one!
Incidentally this pool, housed in a grade II listed building is my favourite in London. At £3.65 to swim on the Kings Road, London is a bargain. Added to the great price is the fact that there are usually only a handful of people using this fabulous pool or gym at any given time (I have had the place to myself several times) making it about as good value as you can get in London for swimming and gym membership.
