Swimming in rivers, or wild swimming, is becoming more and more popular.
On the Cam we have designated the upper reaches of the River as suitable for swimming. Specifically between Byron's Pool and King's Mill Weir. This is approximately 4km of some of the most picturesque landscape on the Cam.
You can view this stretch on our google map here (opens in new window)
This section of the Cam is free from motor boats, rowing craft and you will share the river with the occsional punt, canoe or kayak.
Our byelaws have specific restrictions on swimming on the rest of the Cam and also 36 metres of any lock, sluice or weir.
