Our water is warm
all year round

Welcome to the heated water of our open air pools. Hampton Pool, known as “South West London’s best kept secret” is situated next to Royal Bushy Park. Our main pool is 36 metres long and we also have a learner pool dedicated to children and their parents.

The Sunday Times described us as “one of Britain’s coolest, biggest, hippest pools”.

The water in our pools is heated throughout the year. We provide for the community 365 days of outdoor swimming, yes, you can even have a swim on Christmas Day! more...

Our pools are monitored by a team of professional lifeguards, providing a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities.

The main pool is split in half at all times to allow for lane swimming on one side and family swimming and fun on the other.

Spend a day with us swimming and lazing in the sunshine, remember it’s cheaper and warmer than a family trip to the seaside. Customers even tell us that a day at Hampton Pool is like being
on holiday!

We also offer limited free parking.

All children under 10
MUST be accompanied by an adult IN THE WATER (within easy reach) at all times.No more than two under 10s to each adult.

Weak and non-swimmers must stay in the shallow end with an adult and not go past the point marked on poolside. We highly recommend weak and non-swimmers wear approved buoyancy devices.

Planned rail disruption in our area between 16-30 July

Network Rail have commented: "Due to improvements to drainage in the Falwell area, buses will replace trains between Teddington, Strawberry Hill and Shepperton from 16-30 July.

"Fulwell Tunnel has flooded frequently in recent years and we know how disruptive this has been to the journeys of thousands of our customers. Network Rail aim to reduce this disruption by carrying out vital repair work on the line between Fulwell and Shepperton, particularly the tunnel at Fulwell. This includes replacing and upgrading the drainage system and constructing a new pumping station."
