Hampton Pool

Located right next to Bushy Park, it is open every day of the year! It holds frequent concerts around the pools that are always sold out. It's one of Hampton's hidden gems!

The Bell Inn

Voted one of the top 50 gastro pubs in the UK. On sunny days, grab one of the booths in the back garden.

A picturesque café and restaurant in the Woodland Gardens of Bushy Park. Great, fresh food, cakes, drinks and ice cream.

Whether it's lazing away the summer days watching cricket with a pint from the clubhouse or taking a chilly winter walk to watch the deer, Bushy Park is always a winner!

  1. About Hampton

    Hampton is a suburban area, centred on an old village on the north bank of the River Thames, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is served by Hampton railway station. The Anglo-Saxon parish of Hampton included present-day Hampton, Hampton Hill, Hampton Wick and Hampton Court which together are called The Hamptons. The name Hampton may come from the Anglo-Saxon words hamm meaning an enclosure in the bend of a river and ton meaning farmstead or settlement. It is near Bushy Park and the shopping town of Kingston. The Hampton Heated Open Air Pool is one of the few such swimming pools remaining in Greater London. The riverside, on the reach above Molesey Lock, has many period buildings including Garrick's House and Shakespeare's Temple, also on the river is the Astoria Houseboat recording studio. Hampton Ferry provides access across the Thames to East Molesey.
