November Swim Sessions

  • Thursday – 5-7.30pm
  • Friday 5-7.30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 9-12pm


Swim sessions cost – £8:00 all year around.

You can now pre-book your swim on on the ACTIO App which saves you time on arrival and means you don’t need to carry cash with you.

It is not compulsory to pre-book – you can of course simply turn up and pay on the day.

Please make sure you register for a NOWCA safety wristband and book/pay for your swim before you arrive with us for the first time. It’s a quick and easy registration via the ACTiO app and costs just £12 a year (in addition to your swim session prices). Please choose London Royal Docks OWS’ as your venue and your NOWCA safety wristband will be available when you arrive on your first swim.

Swim Cards

Discounts are available when you buy a block of swims, a swim card with ten swims costs £70 – Avoid delays and bringing cash with you.

You can purchase Swim Cards onsite at reception or click the button below. (Please be aware it can take 24 hours for the credits to appear on your profile)


Where to swim:

You need to head toward the Emirates Sky line and The Crystal building. Once there, walk along the Victoria Dock towards the Oiler bar and Wake up Docklands. You will see a gated entrance leading to a large pontoon clearly marked as London Royal Docks Open Water Swimming – this is where you will need to register/check in and where you can enter and exit the water.

On site facilities:

We now offer on-site facilities including toilets, showers, a changing area and a bag storage area.


We have a great selection of open water products to purchase and staff on hand to discuss what you need, why and how to use.
