Organiser's Description

We're thrilled to announce that 2023 Swim Serpentine will be held on Saturday 16 September in the beautiful setting of London's Hyde Park.

Swim Serpentine is organised by London Marathon Events and offers four different event distances to suit all abilities:

Half mile: a great entry-level event for those new to open water swimming
One mile: one full lap of the famous Serpentine lake
Two mile: ideal for swimmers looking to test themselves with two laps of the Serpentine
Super Six: limited just to 50 people each year, this exclusive event covers a challenging six miles around the Serpentine
All finishers will be sent a souvenir swim cap to wear on the day and awarded with a medal after completing their challenge.

“Swim Serpentine is an amazing event, which is growing in popularity each year, just as open water swimming is,” said Alison Hamlett, Event Lead at London Marathon Events. “More and more people are experiencing the unique feeling of swimming in open water and the physical and mental health benefits it brings.

“If you haven’t tried it yet then Swim Serpentine is a great place to give it a go with our half-mile event. For those who have more open-water experience, our one or two-mile distances are great options.

“Swimming in such an iconic location as the Serpentine is something you’ll never forget.”

How to Get There

We recommend that you travel on the Tube. The closest Tube station to the event area is Lancaster Gate on the Central Line – alight here and the event area is only a 700m walk across Hyde Park. You can also alight at Marble Arch (Central Line), Hyde Park Corner (Piccadilly Line) or Knightsbridge (Piccadilly Line), all of which are around 1K from the event area. For bus information, visit tfl.gov.uk.

You can also visit The Royal Parks website to find out more about getting to Hyde Park.


Triangle Car Park, adjacent to the Serpentine at the north end of Serpentine Bridge, will not be open during the event. Visit The Royal Parks website for more information on alternative parking options in Hyde Park. We recommend that swimmers avoid coming by car as parking spaces are limited.
