Open Water - Where to Swim

London offers a range of options for Open Water swimming but being a large city has less options open to swimmers however having said that we do have some gems:

The Serpentine in Hyde Park http://serpentineswimmingclub.com/

Hampstead Heath Ponds http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/green-spaces/hampstead-heath/swimming/Pages/default.aspx

The Royal Albert Dock, Newham  http://londonsroyaldocks.com/

London is also the home to a number of Outdoor Lidos, a very useful website http://www.lidos.org.uk provides details about all the Lidos in London and beyond.

The Outdoor Swimming Society organises a charity swim in the Serpentine every July, visit their website for further details.
