To has two different uses. It can be an infinitive marker. Examples are: to swim, to work, to break, to go etc.
To can also be a preposition. When to is a preposition, it can be followed by an –ing form, but not normally by an infinitive. This usually happens after expressions like look forward to, in addition to, object to, be used to and get round to.
In the following examples, the preposition to is followed by either a noun or an –ing form.
There are some exceptions to this rule. A few verbs that require to before nouns (e.g. agree, consent, entitled, inclined, prone ) are followed by infinitives, not –ing forms.
