Penzance Jubilee Pool is a joy to swim in. The Art Deco architecture gives a feeling of yesteryear and the Cafe serves lovely coffee.

Just the café and top terrace (not poolside in case of any little accidents!). We will have a day at the end of the season (30 Sept) where you can bring your dogs for a swim.
