summer re-opening


Latest update:

12 July 2021

Following Government announcement that Covid-19 restrictions will be eased from 19 July, we are reviewing the operating arrangements in place at Hampton Pool.

We will be balancing a return to normal with the continuing need to ensure that activities on site are safe for our staff and customers.

It will take us a little time to introduce changes relating to the number of customers and length of stay, taking account of the varied preferences of our customers while prioritising safety. Please keep an eye on our website, app and social media channels for regular updates on what’s changing.

Please be assured that the safety of our customers and staff remains our priority.

We look forward to seeing you at the pool.

Our water is warm all year around

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.
