Our Swimming Guide: London, UK and more...
Our Swimming Guide…
Its a heatwave here in London, 39+ degrees and everyones wondering what to do… so heres our swimming guide to cool you all down…
Hampstead Heath Ponds - This is my favourite spot - especially the women’s pond - it has a very special feeling about it. Theres nothing better than jumping in with ducks.
West Reservoir Centre - Stoke Newington - You need to do an open water test (Monday evenings) but once you’ve done that you can head on down.
Hyde park Serpentine Lido - if your stuck in central London and need a cool off!
I prefere fresh or salty water, but London also has lots of nice Lido swimming pools..
Walpole Tidal Pool Margate - I haven’t made it here yet but its top on the list!
We recently took a trip to Copenhagen and being able to just jump in the water around the city was such a treat……we might just be moving soon!
Devon and Cornwall have so many hidden little bays that you can go out and find but we’ve named a few of the bigger places to swim below..
Bude Sea Pool - such a beautiful setting.
Jubilee Pool Penzance - again we need to make it here, it looks amazing with its art deco features.
Porthtowan Tidal Pool - lovely spot for a dip.
The UK has amazing spots for wild swimming. From the coast to waterfalls in the Brecon Beacons, and beautiful lakes in the Lake District. Get out there and explore them - especially in this beautiful weather. I can reccommend The Outdoor Swimming Society for more information on wild swimming - they are amazing.
