All three systems have orbital obliquity measurements, WASP-24 and WASP-26 have been observed with Spitzer, and WASP-25 was previously comparatively neglected. Our light curves were obtained using the telescope-defocussing method and have scatters of 0.5 to 1.2mmag relative to their best-fitting geometric models. We use these data to measure the physical properties and orbital ephemerides of the systems to high precision, finding that our improved measurements are in good agreement with previous studies. High-resolution Lucky Imaging observations of all three targets show no evidence for faint stars close enough to contaminate our photometry. We confirm the eclipsing nature of the star closest to WASP-24 and present the detection of a detached eclipsing binary within 4.25-arcmin of WASP-26. Description: Light curves of 13 transits of the extrasolar planetary systems WASP-24, WASP-25 and WASP-26 are presented. The data were obtained using the Danish 1.5m telescope, DFOSC imager, and Bessell R and I filters, at ESO La Silla. The telescope was substantially defocussed in order to improve the photometric precision of the observations. The errorbars for each transit have been scaled so the best-fitting model (obtained using the JKTEBOP code) has a reduced chi-squared value of 1.0.
