About Jubilee Pool

Take an open air dip in the UK’s largest and most celebrated saltwater lido. Swim outdoors at this illustrious and historic outdoor swimming pool overlooking Penzance seafront.

Opened in the 1930s, the triangular art deco seawater pool has provided a bracing swim to holidaymakers and Cornish residents alike for many years and 2020 saw Jubilee Pool launch a geothermal pool – a UK first, offering you the chance to bathe in natural salt water heated to 35 degrees by their own hot water well.

This unique experience will create treasured memories for years to come – from splashing around as a family to luxurious holistic treatments for adults, soaking up the Cornish summer sun or enjoying a bracing sea swim in the off-season.

Treat yourself to a post-swim meal at Jubilee Pool cafe, serving locally sourced food and drink with unrivalled views across Mounts Bay.

Worth knowing

Every year in October, at the end of the peak season, Jubilee Pool hosts a Dog Day - take your family pet along for a swim in the seawater lido for one day only, before the pool is closed for winter maintenance.

Book in advance for the geothermal pool

The geothermal pool is a new addition and is very popular - so make sure you check the website to book your tickets in advance. The Main Pool should always be booked in advance during peak season, but may accept drop-ins during quieter periods.

What Visitors Say

"Wonderful geothermal pool and beautiful lido. Very good cafe above."
"Very lovely experience - excellent lido main pool with lots of space even with only half of it in use. We managed to get tickets for the small geothermal pool as well, on the day as none were left to buy in advance. The cafe is excellent, and the staff were all so helpful and friendly."
"Amazing place! The main pool was about 20c, and although I went in with a wetsuit, there were plenty of people without. The geothermal pool is pretty awesome. That pool was about 33c and you can just float and chill. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Good cafe too. Really loved this place!!"
