The Serpentine Lido opens its doors to swimmers from the first of May until sometime in September. They provide lifeguards for paying members of the public to swim from 10am until 6pm daily.
Channel Swimming and Piloting Federation
Many aspiring Channel Swimmers train at the Serpentine. The CS&PF oversee Channel swim attempts, and most of our swimmers register with them rather than the Channel Swimming Association.
SwimTrek is the world's leading swimming holiday operator. Many Serpentine swimmers have been on their tours, and there are a number of SSC members that guide these trips for SwimTrek.
