Naturist Swimming

We hope that you will enjoy exploring the rest of our site to discover more about the Severn Vale Naturist Swimming Club and look forward to welcoming you to one of our swims in the very near future.



Based in Gloucestershire at the Tewkesbury Leisure Centre, our club, which has been established for over twenty years, is a member of British Naturism, the recognised UK's national naturist organisation.

We share with British Naturism the desire to encourage people to take up the naturist lifestyle and are therefore always pleased to offer an especially warm welcome to new members or visitors.

Sunday Swims

We hold our swims every second, fourth and fifth Sunday each month, with every fifth Sunday being a "costumes optional" swim for anyone who wants to see what our club is like but feels a little too shy to undress completely.

In addition to this, first time visits to a swim by any lady are now also costume optional, so if you are considering naturism and would like to join us, or just want to come along on a fifth Sunday to see what it's like, then contact us without delay. You will be made very welcome.

Leisure Centre

The Tewkesbury Leisure Centre (which opened in May 2016 - see the picture above), is operated by Places for People Leisure Ltd. in partnership with Tewkesbury Borough Council and they have made us most welcome.

We are very grateful to them for all their help and support.

British Naturism

We are of course always pleased to see members of British Naturism or BN-affiliated clubs, but to save embarrassment at the door, please bring your membership card with you. Others, particularly those wishing to try naturism for the first time, are welcomed by Severn Vale. However, we would be grateful if you will make prior arrangements by telephoning the club first on either 07988 271760 or 07988 271750. It would also save time on entry to the swim if you could print, complete, and bring with you a visitor registration form, obtainable by clicking the button below in Quick Links.


For people new to naturism who might be a little hesitant, the following e-mail might be of interest. It was received from Mr. & Mrs. B. from Wiltshire, after they attended one of our swims for the first time:

 “Hello, We just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say what a great time we had at your club swim last Sunday”. “It’s so nice to find a club as open and friendly to new people turning up at the door as your club is”. “Once again, many thanks”.
Mr. & Mrs. B.
