London has a variety of swimming pools located across the city, ranging from outdoor lidos to heated indoor pools and Victorians baths with swimming lanes, paddling pools and additional leisure facilities. Websites such as Time Out' London's best swimming pool guide and www.dayoutwiththekids.co.uk provide a list of places in and around the capital that you may wish to browse to find the nearest and most relevant facilities to suit your preferences. The biggest water park in London is the Wet n Wild Waterfront Park in Woolwich, which boasts a 65 metre snake slide, a wave machine, waterfall, volcano, water jets and five lane water-slide. Other family pools across the capital provide flumes and diving boards, such as the Windsor Leisure Centre, which has a 25 metre 6 lane Fitness Pool with wave machine, giant slides, water features, and Spa,  and Archway Leisure Centre, which has a river run, water jets and a wave machine and where the water is kept at a tropical 30 degrees C. In terms of action-packed water parks outside of the capital, the 5 largest aqua parks in the UK are quite some distance from the capital city. The UK's largest water park is Wet n Wild in Tyne and Wear (284 miles north) and The UK's Number 1 Largest Indoor Tropical Aqua Park is WaterWorld, which can be found in Stoke-on-Trent (160 miles away). Other popular resorts include Splashdown in Poole (107 miles) and Alton Towers Water Park in Staffordshire (151 miles). If you're feeling adventurous there are a number of places in London where you can go 'wild swimming'. These include the picturesque Serpentine in Hyde Park, the swimming ponds in Hampstead Heath and even certain areas of the Thames. Check the Outdoor Swimming Society or Wild Swimming websites for further information.

London's Aquapark, or 'Aquatic Centre', does not yet exist but is already planned as a key facility for the 2012 Olympic games, which London will host. The Aquatic Centre is designed as a 20,000-seater state of the art swimming competition venue. It will contain two 50m swimming pools and a 25m diving pool and will stage swimming, diving, synchronised swimming, the water polo finals and the modern pentathlon swimming. It will be situated in the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London. This futuristic Olympic Park will also contain the main athletics stadium, the athletes' village and other arenas. The Aquatic Centre has been designed by architect Zaha Hadid and is budgeted to cost �75 million, although there are concerns it will run considerably over-budget.

London was awarded the 2012 Olympics in July 2005 after beating off a strong challenge from Paris. Madrid, New York and Moscow had also bid to host these games.
