For Children and Kids of All ages
Jubilee Pool, Penzance And a lovely suggestion from Penzance ...

I recently took two classes of children to the Jubilee Pool in Penzance , It was sheltered, warm and safe and empty and it was throwing it down , they loved it . Afterwards, they were able to go undercover into the Pool cafe. For a family who wants a different swimming experience - other than a corporate and noisy swimming pool - Jubilee Pool on a wet day can't be beaten! Jubilee Pool is open as of 2nd June 2012
