The swimming pool at Hampton Pool may be outdoors, but it’s in use all year round as it’s constantly heated to 28 degrees. It’s open 365 days a year, including holidays and Christmas Day. The pool is 36 metres long, with a couple of lanes for the faster swimmers but the rest is for everyone else, while aseparate, smaller heated pool is for children. The onsite gym overlooks the pool, and as well as having a personal trainer to hand they run pilates, yoga and aerobics classes. There is also a café serving full English breakfasts, soups and jacket potatoes, and a grassy patch for picnicking and sunbathing.
