Naturism is ... Liberating!
"The thought of nudity is scarier than nudity itself"
When you shed your clothes you also shed just a few of the burdens of everyday life.
The feeling of liberation, discovery and freedom is something that you cannot describe.
Our skin benefits from exposure to light and air.
A 2015 survey proved that Naturists have higher self-esteem and better body confidence.
Naturism is great for single people as well as families and children alike – it’s an activity that all the family can do together.
Naturist children are happy, well-adjusted and safe; they grow up with a better understanding of what will happen to their bodies and enjoy a relaxed, outdoor life.
Holidays, Beaches, Clubs, Swims, Walking, Sporting, Camping and 'Glamping' (and why not!)
Things to do – you’ll wonder how you did without us - come to an event, find your nearest club or swim, go on a Naturist holiday (including group holidays just for BN Members), get involved with the British Naturism members’ online community, and sign up for free newsletters.
We know you were wondering!
There is no offence of 'nudity' in English law otherwise we wouldn't be here and thousands of people wouldn't cycle naked through our towns and cities each year. But the law can be confusing and some people incorrectly assume that simple nudity can be harmful - especially to children.
Here at BN we campaign to improve the understanding of the law and challenge misconceptions about social nudity.

The BN Members’ Group Winter A…
09 Mar 2019 - 16 Mar 2019The BN Members’ group Winter Activity holiday
Ramsau/Schladming, Austria 9th to 16th March 2019
We are delighted to announce that we are returning to Austria for our third winter activity group holiday. Read a report of our 2018 trip and see the photos.
Once again our base will be the 14 room Landhaus Luhrmann, a family-run hotel built in traditional Austrian style. Open all year round but not usually 100% Naturist, Chalfont Holidays have secured exclusive use for one week only meaning nudity will be permitted anywhere inside the building and also the adjoining rear garden. Accommodation will be on a half-board basis and all meals are freshly prepared on the premises. Hotel facilities include a Naturist spa with swimming pool, two saunas and a steam room.
Situated in the area of Ramsau am Dachstein and Schladming in the Styria region of Austria, Landhaus Luhrmann is approximately 90 minutes from Salzburg airport by road or rail.
This is not just a traditional ‘skiing’ holiday, the area has so much more to offer and there are plenty of other things to do if you are not a skier:
• The area is renowned for its cross country skiing routes, around 200km of varying difficulty, some of them within walking distance of the hotel.
• Walkers are well catered for with many well-signposted paths, some meandering through silent forests, with crisp white virgin snow everywhere.
• The town of Schladming - a popular winter sports centre - also has an old town with pretty shops, bars and cafés to explore.
• At the top of the Dachstein mountain, accessed by cable car, there is a glacier, an ice palace and a suspension bridge where you can walk across the edge of the mountain. With nothing beneath your feet but the open metal structure and thousands of feet drop beneath, you will see some spectacular views.
If downhill skiing is your reason for going, opportunities are of course plentiful and you can choose from pistes of all difficulties across four peaks, with links to further areas to explore beyond. The start points are all between 15 and 20 minutes from the hotel and daily transport will be provided. Ski equipment is easily hired just five minutes away from the hotel.
In addition, there will be a variety of group activities, entertainment and excursions which are likely to include dinner in a local restaurant with Austrian dishes, folk singing and dancing; Horse and Sleigh ride; tutored wine tasting in the cellar of the hotel, by hotel owner Hansmartin; night tobogganing; quizzes and karaoke.
NB - bookings must be made before the end of November 2018 to ensure this trip goes ahead. We will be asking all those who book for a smaller deposit than usual which will be fully refunded in the event that the trip is cancelled.
