This includes 17 major retail outlets from Boots to Next outlets and includes many restaurants and fast food outlets. As well as this, it houses a big Tesco Supermarket, which is perfect for the residents of Hampton.

Health & Fitness Clubs
Hampton also has its own sports and fitness club, housing 5 indoor tennis courts, a sports hall and an outdoor and indoor swimming pool. This is another great advantage to living in the Hampton area and appeals to residents that are keen on fitness and health.
Doctors & Police Offices
Hampton now has their own police department. This is to encourage its residents to feel safe in their surroundings, knowing that help is only a street away if needed. As well as this, there is a Doctor on site, which again, appeals to the needs of its residents, especially families with Children.
Although the building project began in March 1997, it is planned to continue until atleast 2015 with the aim of providing:
- A further 7,000 new homes within four different neighbourhoods
- State of the art education and community facilities,
- Over 12,000 new jobs are to be created within Hampton’s retail, commercial and industrial areas.
All of the above will be set against 50 % open space, park land, lakes, woodlands and nature reserves.
Hampton delivers up to 500 homes per year, working with around 10 different house builders, which joins the community and includes local businesses and provides a wider choice of design for the whole project.
Overall, Hampton is the ideal location for small & large families, people living alone, students and young couples, as it houses everything for everyone’s needs.
