I'm going to be in London on business for 2 days next week. Any suggestions on finding workout groups or pools to use at a hotel or gym? Thanks

I had forgotten about this site. I'm so glad you posted it. I'm traveling over the holidays and found a pool 1 block from where I'm staying.

I swam with the Otter group again this past Aug-Sep, and they still allow drop-in swimmers. Here's some examples of their workouts:

A lot of the public pools in London are run by GLL Leisure, so you try having a look at their website.

Last week I swam at QMSC (Vauxhall Bridge Rd). It is a good 25 m pool.
