A great way to improve your swimming is to have swimming lessons. They will give you structured development and targets to aim for.
Adult swimming lessons are very common and most pools will offer them, either in groups or one-to-one.
Lessons for adults are also very flexible so you'll find something to suit you whatever your level. They are great for improvers.
What makes a good lesson

The ASA Adult Framework is targeted at people over the age of 14 with flexibity and sociability as cornerstones. Lesson providers should offer you wider opportunities to improve your swimming, such as British Gas Swimfit sessions or access to a swimming club.
Your teacher needs to be qualified to ASA UKCC Level 2. This is your assurance that the teacher has all the skills to efficiently prepare, deliver and evaluate your swimming sessions, so you get the best from your sessions.
