"Pools in London are vile, dirty, cockroach-infested middens. Top marks to Brixton Recreation Centre's pond for sheer filth and grime, had I not resisted the desire to vomit it would have made little difference. Not unusual to pull used condoms from the filters I was informed by an ex-member of staff....nice
Why can't we follow the example of out continental friends: showering thoroughly before entering pool (using soap) and wearing swim caps.
It will never happen."
