Hidden in the very heart of London, Marshall Street Pool is an absolute Art Deco gem that I have used for a couple of years. Not only have I always enjoyed my swim, but unlike other pools I enjoy the experience of stepping back in time and gaze at the architecture and details that the pool offers. This is probably why I prefer doing breast stroke here, as I have time to gaze at the barrel vaulted roof and marble tiled walls. The pool itself is a decent length and unlike other pools that have a rubber bottom that can rub your feet, this is all marble which makes my feet skim and not rub. (It's the little things that matter, right?)
My advice overall is to enjoy your experience, not just the swim, and if you can go during the day, obviously it's quieter and consequently more enjoyable.
