The pool is within Stanley Primary School, Strathmore Road, Teddington.
The closest place to park is adjacent to the school in Strathmore Road (this is a one way road which you must access from Shacklegate Lane, rather than from Stanley Road). There is also parking on Stanley Road itself. Please note that around 9am and then again from 3 till 3:45 the roads surrounding the school are very congested and it is virtually impossible to park. You should only apply for lessons at this time if you are already in the area or do not drive to the lessons.
