Jubilee Pool, Penzance

Jubilee Pool in Winter

This is Penzance’s art deco Jubilee Pool, the largest outdoor lido in the UK. It was built back in the 1930s to celebrate King George V’s Silver Jubilee (I think!).

Over the years the pool has fall in an out of repair with periods in the 1990s when it was closed. Given the pools iconic value and importance to the town of Penzance this seems unimaginable.

This is a seawater pool with the sea just over the wall. And like the sea it has many moods. The water can be crystalline turquoise on a summer’s day or on days like this the pool can have a very different feel. For this reason, although there are no shortage of photos of the Jubilee Pool there is still scope for a few more.
