    I would like to go swimming.

    Hello!

    I would like to go swimming. As far as I know, this is the correct form.

    What about this:

    I would like to swim.

    Re: I would like to go swimming.

    Both sentences are grammatically correct. The first is more common and natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I would like to go swimming.

    There are contexts where the second would be fine - I would like to swim the English Channel - but without the extra context, it isn't particularly natural.
