They’re currently enjoying a well-earned break before jetting off to Australia for the final leg of their Take Me Home world tour.
And with the One Direction boys making the most of their time off, Niall Horan headed for the putting green for a relaxing round of golf.
The 19-year-old singer was spotted making his way towards a London golf course with a large bag of clubs slung over one shoulder.
Accompanied by his father and brother, Niall appeared to be making the most of his sedate surrounding by opting for a pair of casual loafers that looked remarkably like slippers.
However, the Irish heartthrob soon swapped his sensible footwear for a pair of golfing shoes as he furiously practiced his swing.
Despite his best efforts, Niall – a keen golfer – appeared to be well behind during the family competition.
As the day progressed the singer appeared to play chauffer by ferrying his group around the course on a golf buggy, his eyes hidden behind a pair of sunglasses as he navigated the winding pathways surrounding the green.
Niall was last seen wielding a club with band-mate Harry Styles during the North American leg of the band’s US tour.
Indeed, the two pals climbed into their plus ones for a good natured game at Toronto’s National Golf Club of Canada in July.
The pair later posed alongside two golfing partners in a snap that was later posted on Harry’s Twitter account.
While Niall appeared to be enjoying the peace and quiet on Thursday, it will be business as usual when One Direction regroups for the final leg of their tour later this month.
The first show is scheduled to take place in Adelaide on September 23, with a further 23 shows planned before they close in Melbourne on October 30.
Elsewhere Liam Payne’s apartment has been left with black smoke damage and charred remains following the explosion that took place in east London on Monday night.
One party-goer suffered worse than the penthouse flat, the singer’s friend Andy Samuel, who was left with superficial burns to his face after being engulfed by flames when a heater on the balcony exploded.
Andy’s stepfather Matthew Baker has revealed just how narrowly his son avoided further injury, and praised Liam for his quick thinking and brave actions.
He told The Mirror: ‘The lantern just exploded as Andy was lighting it and he took the full force of the flames.
‘Liam helped him by beating out the flames and dousing him with water. He acted quickly and swiftly’.
Mr Baker added: ‘What happened was absolutely awful. My son is very poorly. I’ve spoken to Liam on the phone and he told me exactly what happened. It’s bad enough but it could have been a lot worse.’
Andy’s mother Kim and sister Harriet also thanked Liam for his actions, while his girlfriend Daisie Smith wrote on Twitter: ‘Thank you so much for all of your lovely messages and prayers. On behalf of Andy’s family and I we’d like you to know he is in a stable condition.’
It took a team of 35 fire fighters to extinguish the blaze on Monday night, which destroyed 80% of the singer’s balcony.
Liam has been busy recently touring the US with his One Direction bandmates but he’s spent the last few days back in London celebrating his 20th birthday.
After spending the day filming One Direction’s latest music video over the weekend, the singer spent the evening partying with his new girlfriend Sophia Smith.
