Swimming in the Lake District  

Swimming in lakes, rivers and tarns is a popular activity in the Lake District, but it is important to be aware of the risks involved before entering the water. Lakes and tarns can be deep and the water will still be cold, even on warm days. Before you set off, read the Lake District National Park's guide to swimming to make sure you have the right skills and equipment to stay safe in the water.
