Overlooked by the impressive Canary Wharf, the Great London Swim is your opportunity to join thousands of likeminded adventurous swimmers and take a dip in the heart of the capital's docklands.
Following some fantastic feedback in 2013, the event has this year moved to the Docklands Sailing & Watersports Centre at Millwall Dock. The new venue allows family and friends to follow swimmers around the full course, cheering them on from the dockside.
This year also sees the introduction of a new 'Family Wave' where swimmers from 12 years and up can take on a slightly shorter ½ mile course. So if you are looking for the best time in London wearing a wetsuit, look no further than the Great London Swim.
