What locals say about Hampton

  1. I like the outdoor heated swimming pool in Bushy Park – particularly in the winter with mist coming off the water – Hampton Court Palace and of course, the Thames and boating.

  2. I love Hampton because of Bushy Park and the eccentric individuals that live in the area!

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.
