Last week people got to experience the United Kingdom's first-ever sky pool in Nine Elms, London.
According to the Embassy Gardens website, The Sky Pool is transparent, 25 metres long, and appears to float in the air. It stretches between the rooftops of the Legacy Buildings at Embassy Gardens.
According to Designbuild-network.com, Embassy Gardens is a luxury development in Nine Elms, which includes nine apartment buildings with office, retail and community space.
Are you brave enough to take a dip in this swimming pool?
The view of the pool was unsettling for some Twitter users, while others expressed a keenness to try it.
One user said: "I've taken a lot of calculated risks in my life but I would not swim in this pool. No thanks."
