Welcome to the heated water of our open
air pools. Hampton Pool, known as “South West London's
best kept secret” is situated
in two acres of woodland 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.
In a recent article, 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
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
trip to the seaside. Customers even tell us that a day at Hampton Pool is like being
