New Wild Swimming

Wild Swimming Book

New Edition of Wild Swimming

5 years ago Wild Swimming launched a new trend in swimming outdoors and wild adventures. The long-awaited all-new second edition of Wild Swimming is published on the 27th May, fully revised and expanded to include:

• 150 amazing NEW wild swimming locations • Brand new coverage in the South-East and the Midlands • New information for kids and families • New ideas for pubs, campsites, boat trips and weekends • New safety and access ratings and improved maps and digital grid references.

Imagine a summertime tour through the wildest and most beautiful regions of Britain – boating, camping and swimming along the way and you can see why Wild Swimming became an instant best-seller when it was published in 2008. It inspired BBC and ITV series and helped grow a new movement. With well over 300 wild swim locations this revised and expanded edition features the same winning formula of stunning photography, engaging travel writing, maps and practical guidance, and is set to continue as the definitive guide to outdoor swimming in wild Britain.

Quotes from Daniel Start:

“In this great British tour you’ll be able to swim with otters in Devon, go river-tubing in Yorkshire, night-swim under the stars in Oxfordshire and learn how to build a woodland sauna. In each chapter you’ll discover famous wild-swimmers of the past and read stories of heroes, lovers and ordinary folk who have long enjoyed bathing under the willows.”

“Interest in wild swimming has sky rocketed since 2008 with over 0.5 million people per year visiting our wild swimming map, and bookings for outdoor swimming events up 10 times. This trend reflects a greater desire to holiday at home, escape the city and use water as a way to get fit and find adventure.”

“The health benefits of wild swimming are increasingly well known. Taking the plunge reawakens the senses, boosts the immune system, increases blood flow and provides a natural endorphin high that creates an addictive urge to dive back in.”
