Hampton Pool, known as “South West London’s best kept secret” is situated next to Royal Bushy Park. The main pool is 36 metres long and there is also a learner pool dedicated to children and their parents. During ‘Lane Swim’ sessions, the main pool is split into six to accommodate swimmers of different speeds and ability. For ‘Recreational Swim’ sessions, the main pool is split in half to allow for lane swimming on one side (up to three lanes) and family swimming and fun on the other.
The two pools are situated in a south facing woodland area on the outskirts of Bushy Park. There’s a grassed area for you to just laze in the sun between your swims.
Pay as you go swims are available but you will need to check for available swimming sessions on the booking app before arriving at the pool.
