Jubilee Pool is the largest and most celebrated sea water pool in the UK.
* These are normal capacity levels. Current social distancing guidelines mean these levels will be significantly lower in 2020, with a maximum of 150 in the main pool and 15 in the geothermal pool.
As with other coastal lidos across the country, Jubilee Pool is designed as a seawater pool with no mechanical filtration and minimal chemical treatment.
The quality of the water is carefully a maintained with a regime of daily water replacement that is timed with the outgoing and incoming tides; and the water in the learner pool is normally replaced daily when a small amount of chlorine is added. This approach means that the water levels in the main pool are continuously changing and access to some areas may occasionally be restricted.
This programme is also supported by a regular drain down (over 5 million litres of water). Cleaning and refilling is usually completed during fortnightly higher tides, weather and sea conditions permitting. To allow for these drain downs, and to enable us to carry out weekly deep cleans of the site we will be closed every Monday.
The quality of the pool water is scientifically tested to ensure we meet the required standards.
Following the Government announcement today that Cornwall will be in tier 1 we are pleased to announce that the Geo Pool and Café will be open from Wednesday 2nd December. Tickets for the geo pool will go on sale at 12 noon on 30th November and advance booking is essential. We are again working on a reduced capacity, so we expect the sessions to sell out quickly so be ready on Monday to avoid disappointment. We can’t wait to see you all again!

We aim to be open as usual over the weekend, however times may vary in the adverse weather. We will update this page with any further changes.
