Come and Join Us
British Naturism is run by Naturists for Naturists.
British Naturism (BN) is the internationally recognised UK national Naturist organisation. We exist to unite and support Naturists, to protect and provide more Naturist venues, to make social nudity acceptable in the UK and to provide comprehensive information on Naturism and Naturists around the world. We’re here to make your experience of Naturism better.
A BN membership is so much more than a magazine, it is about being part of the wider Naturist scene and getting other benefits. From saving money on BN events to campaigning for Naturists rights. Being a part of BN is knowing that you are helping to support the practice of Naturism, so that it continues to thrive and helps others to realise the life-affirming benefits of social nudity.

We offer discounts on the basic fee for people aged 65 and over and students in full-time education. Two people joining using the same postal address can take advantage of a discounted rate for couples, but will only receive one copy of the BN magazine and any other mailings.

Information and Advice
If you're new to Naturism then you probably have a hundred and one questions about what to do next and how it all works:
- What happens at Naturist events?
- Am I allowed to be naked in my garden?
- How do I just get to meet other Naturists?
- ...and many more.
Sure, you could trawl the internet looking for advice from strangers, but a BN membership gives you direct access to over 8000 other members, volunteers and BN officials who actually organise local, national and international events, and write the legal guidance on what you can do and what might be best avoided. Why take a chance when when the answers you need are right here!
Attend exclusive member-only Events
There are literally hundreds of naturist events throughout the year and around the country, including our extra-special Big Days Out. Some of these are open to the public but others, such as our annual weekend at Alton Towers (yes, the real one) are exclusive to BN members.
You can find a full listing of all of the upcoming events in our main events calendars.

Holiday Advice Service
The BN Holiday Advice service is run by members for members. Our panel of experts have sailed naked in the Med, camped in California, cruised in the buff in the Caribbean and cycled to naturist clubs in Great Britain. They have been to naturist clubs, beaches, hotels and resorts everywhere from New Zealand to the Netherlands, from Mexico to Montenegro and from Austria to Australia.
We have a number of designated experts for the UK, France, Greece, Spain (including the Canaries), Germany, Austria, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal and Croatia. If you are a BN member, the team will be glad to help you.
Photo ID Membership Card
When you join BN you can upload a passport-style photo and we'll send you a photo-ID membership card. This not only gives you access to many BN events but can also be used to identify yourself as a bona-fide Naturist when visiting clubs or dealing with those in authority.
BN is affiliated to the International Naturist Federation and your BN photo-ID card is also recognised as an INF card. This is your essential passport to access to many overseas Naturist destinations, and discounts in many others.
Opportunity to Volunteer
British Naturism is a volunteer organisation. Every day, people up and down the country are actively involved in promoting Naturism though organising events or supporting our campaigning teams.
Whether it’s helping to organise a holiday, an event, a meet and greet, welcome members to a swim or a club, speaking to curious visitors, there are a range of roles available.
If you can spare a little bit of time and energy then take the first step towards making a real and rewarding contribution to health and body confidence with British Naturism.
Save 25% off BN Events
BN members receive at least a 25% discount on any BN events that are also open to the general public. Attending just a few events per year can mean that you can easily recoup the cost of your membership.
