London is getting an exciting new feature to add onto the beauty and adventure of the beautiful city. According to reports, London is going to be home to a 360 degree infinity pool on top of a 50-storey tall skyscraper.

But hold on, where would you enter and exit this ‘360 degree’ infinity pool? well, the designers have it all figured out. The swimming pool will be accessed through ‘a rotating spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine, rising from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out’.

The report also adds that the pool will not be made of glass but instead cast acrylic will be used. It will also feature a a computer-controlled building management system to prevent the water from randomly falling over the edge. Imagine walking on the pavement on a summer day in London and voila, you’re drenched.


The reason behind this design is to build a pool with an uninterrupted view. The pool’s designer Alex Kemsley said,

Pop your goggles on and with a 360-degree view of London from 220m up, it really will be something else – but it’s definitely not one for the acrophobic. 

The internet also had a few things to add to this.

Would you to dare to go?
