SwimWay Swimming School Pool Focus: Kew Gardens

Our pool focus blogs have covered some of our longest-running venues such as East Sheen, Putney and Wimbledon/Southfields. It has also delved into our Balham/Tooting Bec and Wandsworth Common pools. Now we visit a location that has been with us for a number of years now. Additionally, it and has recently undergone some extensive renovations. The SwimWay Kew Gardens pool is an exceedingly popular venue, with demand growing every term.


For many years, our Kew Gardens pool was consistently fully booked, though it had limited facilities. The location was just so excellent, that many clients preferred the ease over facilities at other SwimWay venues.

In 2018, SwimWay invested a large sum of money to upgrade the facilities. A brand new shower, toilet and 3 changing cubicles were installed. Each cubicle also contains baby changing units – a huge help when running parent and baby lessons. The pool lining and tiling was also renovated, as well as the external location structure.

Since then, our operational hours have been extended. We have also introduced our ever-popular parent and baby lessons. Not to mention our morning 1:1 adult lessons that run on-demand, dependent on availability.

Lesson Schedules

We run term-time and holiday courses at the SwimWay Kew Gardens venue. Term time lessons for children run Mondays – Fridays, 2.00pm – 7.00pm (1:1 and 1:2 lessons). They also run on Saturdays, 8.30am – 6.00pm (1:1 lessons only). Small group parent and baby classes run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9.30am – 12.30pm. 1:1 adult lessons run in the same days/hours as the parent and baby lessons. However, they are only available if we do not have a parent and baby class running at that time.


Free parking is available on Nylands Avenue in the afternoons, and the pool is a 4-minute walk from Kew Gardens Station. You can find more information about parking in the Borough here.
