London: Open-Air Winter Swimming...Take the Plunge!
 
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/20/wo...race.html?_r=0

If looking for an off-beat thing to do this winter in London you can take a swim in four outdoor pools that are kept open for Londoners who just want to chill. Chill out.

So if you need to cool off this winter in London, pack the ole swim suit and take the plunge!

It's all over the country. I'm sure this lady at Carnlough in Northern Ireland on New Year's Day 2012 is a Fodorite at heart:

The London Fields Lido is heated, and looks quite inviting with the steam rising from the water when there's snow on the ground.
