Wild swimming

Where can I do this?


Are the costs to get started high or low?


Would I be doing this in a group, in a couple, or on my own? 


Are there physical requirements that might make it difficult for me to participate?


So what's it all about?

"Wild swimming" is swimming outside in natural environments like lakes, the sea, or rivers, at any time of the year, usually in cold water.

It's popular in the UK all year round and is said to have health benefits, including helping with depression. Costs are low if you are in a relatively temperate climate. In winter you might need to invest in a wet suit.

Above all, if you are considering swimming in places without a life guard you should take care to stay safe and never swim alone.
