A view from Penzance

 From 1930 to 2018, Jubilee Pool's still making a splash 

We've had a scorching summer so far, and with the heatwave set to continue theres no better time to visit Jubilee Pool- our stunning open-air swimming pool. 

Jubilee has been a Penzance landmark for almost 100 years and there are big plans for it's future. 

Originally designed in the early 1930's by Captain F Latham, the Borough Engineer, the pool opened in 1935 to commemorate King George V's Silver Jubilee. 

 

Jubilee's striking Art Deco design and its status as both an architectural icon and one of the UK's largest lidos ensures it attracts thousands of visitors each year.

While Jubilee sustained significant damage during the storms of 2014, local support and a 3-million-pound refurbishment saw it reopen in 2016. 

 Now Jubilee is set to break new ground thanks to a further 1.4-million pound investment. 

The EU grant will see a section of Jubilee Pool heated by geothermal energy, uniting bracing and warming waters and making it the first facility of its kind in the UK.

This exciting project is still under development, but for now Jubilee is still the perfect place to dive into summer.
