The jubilee pool in Penzance was trashed in the storms of 2014, however it has been totally rebuilt and returned to its former glory (well done every one). I also believe that we might have thermal heating next year, watch this space. If this happens...More

We visited here end of September but the weather was cold and uninviting. A disappointment, but we did get to walk around it and see it. Looks like it would be a nice place to go for a swim on a summer day! Perhaps another...More

Great spot, recent refurb. A little chilly but great value. Kids loved the inflatable wipeout activity on Tuesdays and Sundays. Clean and well maintained

We are lucky enough to live close to this iconic pool and love it dearly as do most local residents and many of those who visit. The water is braising or refreshing dependant on weather and individual sensory processing and sensibility.
