Naturist Swim

If you have never tried naturist swimming before then give it a try, you have nothing to lose except your wet cozzie. This is also a great way to meet people and make new friends. Our swims are just like going to any council run swimming pool except we don‘t use swim-wear.

Firstimers

Naturism attracts people from all walks of life. Anybody can be a naturist and once you have tried swimming without your costume you will never want to wear one again. The only regret that you will have is why you left it for so long before trying it out.

New visitors and new members will be escorted by a club member on their first session, when on the premises.

Nervousness

If you are thinking about trying naturism out for the first time but you are nervous about going nude in public then so were the rest of us as there was a first time for all of us, but after a few minutes you will wonder why you were so nervous in the first place.

Very nervous newcomers may wear a costume on their first visit.

What is Naturism?

Naturism or nudism, is not wearing clothes during everyday life in appropriate activities, such as swimming, in your home and garden or at a beach. Naturism is healthy and sensible, why wear clothes when the weather is hot!

Naturism is normal

It's ordinary people choosing not to wear clothes when the circumstances and weather are appropriate to do so. Our activities are no different from what most people do in their leisure time, other than the dress code. We're not anti-clothes, we just know that they are not always needed.

Naturism is very popular

In the UK there are 3.7 million naturists (according to a national survey by IPSOS-MORI in 2011) and around the world, millions of people have discovered this wonderful way of life.

There are thousands of swimming venues, beaches, holiday resorts and other places for naturists. Plenty of people spend time naked at home, go skinny dipping and go topless on beaches.
