Down the road, another members club with a rooftop swimming pool grapples for our Instagram attention: The Curtain Club, part of the uber cool Mondrian hotel with its accompanying rooftop bar, Laurel’s On The Roof.

Down the road, find another City swimming spot in The Ned, a very exclusive members’ club with a 20 metre swimming pool overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral. Follow your paddle with a bite from the rooftop bar – or, better still, a tasty cocktail.

This one may not have opened its doors just yet, but it promises to be a goodie. From the people behind the famous Bamford wellness brand comes The Club, a 360º wellness experience (think health, fitness and wellbeing) nestled in 3,500 acres of organic Cotswolds farmland. Expect a 25 metre indoor pool (heated by a biomass boiler) as part of the state-of-the-art gym, as well as a warm outdoor plunge pool with panoramic views of the orchard.

It’s all business at the front and party at the back at 180 Strand – or should we say business downstairs (this is a co-working space after all) and party at the top, with a glittering rooftop pool circumferenced by a cocktail bar for the coolest of after work drinks.

For an idyllic home-from-home members club, Fritton Lake takes the biscuit. Part hotel, part members club, part rewilding project, this Norfolk spot is set in 1,000 acres of land – unspoilt woodland, lush meadows, and the titular lake – as well as clubhouse rooms, woodland cabins, farmhouse cottages, and tennis courts, a swimming pool, and the tasty Clubhouse restaurant.

Lansdowne Club

9 Fitzmaurice Place, London W1J 5JD

If an indoor swimming pool is more your speed, the Lansdowne Club is home to a whopper: a 75 ft, art deco whopper, to be precise. There’s also state-of-the-art fitness facilities, squash courts and a fencing salle d’armes, plus frequent golf and pigeon shooting excursions.

Birch is all about home-from-home, chilled out vibes, with creatively crafted bedrooms sitting alongside leisure facilities and co-working spaces. The Lido is hidden in the walled garden, stretching 25 metres and accompanied by snacks from the Links Cafe, as well as a bar.

If one thing isn’t quite clear yet, Soho House loves members clubs with pools. Here’s their third London offering: over in Shoreditch, it’s all red and white striped loungers circling the blue tiled 16 metre swimming pool. Heated and open year round, it’s perfect for a cool off.

We’re sure you’ve seen this one on Instagram… Escaping London for the Cotswolds, Soho Farmhouse is the Soho House brand’s answer to a luscious countryside escape. Expect an experience akin to a retreat of sorts: there’s 100 acres of Oxfordshire countryside to play with, as well as a spa, gym, and that all important swimming pool. The latter is a 135 ft indoor-outdoor barn haven heated to 35˚C year-round.
