Swim at the River Hamble Country Park

Hampshire County Council


Swim in this beautiful, quiet stretch of the Hamble River from the River Hamble Country Park. Set back from the busy lower Hamble, the Country Park is an oasis of peace. The riverbank is accessible in several places and has small stony beaches from where you can easily access the water. The river is very tidal here so choose your time to swim wisely. There is a short walk through the woods from the car park to the river.
