Skinnydipping in the UK
Don’t wait for a special event or holiday to come around, just do it now!
If you fancy a skinnydip just get in touch with one of these groups and forget your swimsuit, any time of the year. And if you’re only just coming around to the idea ask them about any ‘costume-optional’ introductory events that they may be holding.
We’re told that the naturist swims listed here offer equal access to all, male or female, singles or couples and that you do not need to already be a member of a naturist club or organisation. If you’ve experienced anything different at any of these the please let us know via our Contact page.

Naturist Swim sessions happen at a good range of local swimming pools around the UK and some have been happening for over 30 years. Often they are held on a weekly basis and they attract people from all walks of life.
All the swims try to create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere where families, couples and singles alike can come and enjoy three hours of naturist or nude swimming and socialising. And they will welcome genuine naturists irrespective of background, age, shape, race or ethnicity.
Many will offer more than just swimming. Fitness, Yoga, Pilates and even Life-Drawing will feature in their weekly or monthly programmes.
Whether you have been a naturist all your life or want to give it a try, the swims will give you the opportunity to experience that unique feeling of freedom that swimming or exercising without clothes gives you. And if you have never swum without clothes, you have definitely missed one of life’s pleasures.
If your Naturist Swim group isn’t listed here, and you believe that it should be then have a word with your organiser and point them to this page.
