About GBSD

Taking place across the UK in September 2018

The Great British Skinny Dip has been organised to create an upbeat, health-focused, anyone-can-do-it, exciting challenge for people in the UK to discover the health benefits of clothes-free activities and to help change people's attitudes towards body image.


This great event will provide lots of opportunities for people to try costume-free swimming across many varied locations, whilst having fun and raising awareness of how many people’s buttoned-up attitude to the human body is causing them to lead potentially unhealthy lives.

The more we hide away and are ashamed of our bodies - the harder it is to look after them properly and the greater likelihood of people having body confidence issues.

Throughout September 2018 there will be many opportunities, in varied locations all around the country, for people discover the fun, exhilaration and liberation of shaking off your clothes - and your troubles too!


Maybe you have a cause that you would like to raise money for?

If so, why not organise your own skinny dip?

Or, if that sounds like too much hard work then simply take part in one of our pre-organised events.
