On a hot day this place is fabulous. It gets so hot by the pool as the walls are so tall you don't get any breeze. It can get really busy, so if you're looking for a quiet swim/sunbathe pick your time carefully. The cafe...More

Open air pool. Always on verge of being closed/abandoned by the Council. Icy cold at the best of times. No shelter whatsoever from sun. Usual English lobsters getting redder and redder on poolside. Iconic structure; shame to see it unloved and unused for most of...More

Very unique experience! An art deco lido salt water pool. Don't expect it to be warm but it will be warmer than the ocean. I also loved longing on the steps!

The jube is back looking great after a two year renovation. We used a family ticket many times this summer - the children love jumping in the deep. Good in most weather as sheltered from the wind. Cafe good too.

The Jubilee Pool is a delight and a pleasure. Recently revamped and much loved by locals. Make sure you buy the t-shirt and swimming hat as these products raise money for up keep

yes but because the water temperature is a few degrees warmer than swimming in the sea, not really needed.
How deep us the pool? Feet and inches please? How does the sea water get in and out and how often does it get refreshed? Thanks

The Jubilee Pool is between 3 ft deep at shallow end and about 7 ft at deep end. The pool is refilled at high tide by sea water filtered as it is pumped into the pool. This keeps seaweed out very efficiently. I think it is... More
