I and three friends are all relatively recently qualified Advance Open water divers but have never dived without a guide. We undertook a dry suit course this weekend and are planning a weekend's UK diving in September.

We want to build some confiidence and would like to spend the first day in "confined" water (i.e. a lake) so that we can practice our navigation skills/get used to diving without a guide and then for the second day do some easy open water diving, ideally a wreck!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a good UK location to try (we're based in the South East but can travel to a reasonable extent), and a good dive shop for tank hire and local orientation?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

TRy looking at the places to dive section on this site and they have a list of places you can dive inland in the UK eg old quarries and lots of comments from divers, saying what its like etc

Maybe try Horsea Island diving centre near Portsmouth or Stoney Cove dving Centre in Leicestershire - If you don't mind the travel I really like Capernwray diving centre in Cumbra
