The Pool

Choose to stay all day or simply pop in for a quick dip; Jubilee Pool is the ideal place for all the family to swim safely.

Jubilee Pool Community Benefit Society

Jubilee Pool is operated by Friends of Jubilee Pool. The Community Benefit Society set up by Friends of Jubilee Pool now has a 99 year lease on the pool and is committed to its future as a community asset. The CBS is supported by Penzance Town Council and Cornwall Council.

The main pool is ideal for all swimmers, and there is a small children’s bathing pool for toddlers and younger children.

The pool is triangular in shape yet with gentle curves creating a unique streamlined appearance, featuring steps and Cubist-style changing rooms. High walls protect swimmers from strong, offshore winds and form terraces for spectators and sunbathers. You are welcome to bring a picnic and there are also tables provided on the top terrace.

Lavatories with baby changing facilities are provided, and there are warm showers. There are 96 changing cubicles on site but please note not all of these have doors fitted. 

Jubilee Pool Café

Jubilee Pool Café is being relaunched for 2017. Like Jubilee Pool it will now operate as a social enterprise with all profits reinvested for the future of the pool. Our new team will be serving delicious refreshments and fabulous food throughout the day and evenings during the summer season. 

Pool Etiquette- Please read!

Children under the age of 12 years are not permitted access to Jubilee Pool unless accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 16 years or parent.

Children under the age of 8 years must be accompanied by an adult in the water with the following ratios:
Under 4s – 1 adult: 1 child.
Aged 4-7 years – 1 adult: 2 children

Children aged 8 years and over may swim unaccompanied, provided that they can swim unaided.

Flotation devices should be worn by non-swimmers.

It is the duty of the adult to remain in full eye contact of their charge(s) throughout the whole of the visit to Jubilee Pool, and to make an alternative temporary arrangement should it be necessary to leave the child at any time.
