We will be running NOWCA swim every Saturday at 10.30am –  a free weekly 400m timed swim

As the light is now fading in the evenings, finish times are getting earlier… sunset is currently about 7.45pm and expected to get earlier by about 15mins per week.


Where to swim:
You need to head toward the Emirate Sky line and The Crystal building. Once there walk alone the Victoria Dock towards the Oiler bar and Wake up Docklands. You will see a pontoon with a Blue and White Boat – this is where you will enter and Exit the water.

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.


Pay as you go – £8:00 summer season

Discounts are available when you buy a block of swims, a swim card with ten swims costs £70 – you have to buy these at reception – avoid delays and bringing cash with you.
