Swim SerpentineNow in its second year, Swim Serpentine is a new event for the growing number of open water swimmers - 4,000 entered the mass-participation one-mile swim in its first year and thousands are expected again in 2017. Swim half a mile, a mile or a challenging two miles, lapping the Serpentine twice to achieve a full 1.6km. 'Super Sixers' swim six miles combing the one-mile and two-mile events during the day. Spectators can enjoy the festival atmosphere with paddle boats, face painting and Bubbles of Fun for the children. Don't forget to bring your swim kit - there'll be plenty of opportunities to sign up on the day and have a go at water polo, open water and synchronised swimming.

 

About Serpentine Boating Lake

Fed by a pure underground spring, and set in the heart of London's gorgeous Hyde Park, the Serpentine Boating Lake is one of the most pleasant places to experience summer in London. With 110 pedalos and rowboats, and a fantastic swimming area there are few better places to forget the bustle and buzz of the big city and float away and relax. More about Serpentine Boating Lake
