Heron lake is one of the biggest Open Water Swimming venues in England. Located just 100 metres off the M25 and junction 13, not only does it have beautiful surroundings, safe and clean water but there is also a clubhouse with showers, changing facilities, food and hot drinks available. There is ample parking available for over 150 cars, and they regularly get 600 swimmers a week.

Training available includes mass starts, swim, bike, brick training and complete guided transition training. Turbo trainers are set up for athletes to bring their bikes for the brick training. Using Heron lake is perfect training for events like The BIG SOUTH Swim or London Triathlon and for beginners looking to get used to open water swimming.

SBR Sports (Swim Bike Run) supplies all triathlon equipment from their stores located just down the road in Windsor and London, Fulham Road. SBR have everything you could possibly need and can even offer delivery to the lake.

There are also wetsuits available for sale and hire/trial. SBR is the official retailer at Heron Lake & runs a ‘try before you buy’ system. You can try a wetsuit whenever you come to the lake for a small fee of £15. If you wish to purchase the suit, the £15 hire charge will be deducted from the price of the wetsuit. If you are a member of a club then they can offer club packages to purchase multiple swim passes at a heavily reduced rate, plus swimmers can purchase a 10-pass ticket for £35, rather than £50.
