There’s A Giant Ball Pool Filled Lido Coming To London

5th September 2018

If there is one thing we can all agree on as Londoners, it’s that swimming the Thames is a bad idea, even if it is the cleanest river in a major city, no one wants to get sick (cast your mind back to David Walliams charity swim in 2011 and how ill he got). So, we have a better alternative, a Thameside ball filled lido, which not only is going to look excellent on your Instagram (because that’s what we all live for obviously) but also you have the chance to win a holiday.

Brought to you by Virgin Holidays, the pool will be popping up at Observation Point on Southbank on the 13th and 14th September, encouraging us to embrace our playful sides and dive into 140,000 coloured balls. That said, we’ll need no encouragement when there is a chance to win a trip to Barbados, Las Vegas, Antigua and Universal Orlando Resort, we’ll be jumping right into those balls looking for the lucky golden balls. No, you’re immature.

And the best part? It’s free.

Virgin Holidays ‘The World is Your Playground’ Ball Pool will appear at Observation Point, Southbank, SE1 9LT from 11am to 7pm on Thursday 13th September 2018 and 9am to 6pm on Friday 14th September 2018.
