Wild Swimming – places to swim

Where to swim wild in UK - books and websites, plus equipment for the wild swimmer

I prefer to swim in the sea or rivers.

I’ve written a bit about swimming at Shoreham and nearby but to find out where you can swim outdoors around the UK there are some useful websites you can visit.

Here you can also find advice about how to cope with the cold in winter! (My method is to stay out of the water.)

Further down there are some products which may be of interest to wild swimmers. For more information click on the Amazon links.
