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.
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.

As we will be collecting the money on the evening please remember to bring cash, as we cannot handle debit or credit cards.
There is a cafe in the gardens, but it closes at 17.30hrs. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink along, there are picnic areas, and the tables and chairs outside the cafe can be used after it closes.
Please park in the top car park. Once the event starts you can undress at your car.
Dogs are allowed in the gardens (not the cafe), but please remember to clear up after them.
The curator advises that Naturists arriving and visiting the gardens in normal opening hours can stay on for the evening without an additional charge.
