In Penzance, the Jubilee Pool has just opened a new ‘geothermal’ pool – the first of its kind in the UK. The Art Deco seawater lido, dated 1935, continues to offers its classic pool but now has a steamy section using warm water extracted from a geothermal well (heated to a very comfortable 35 degrees). In the interest of social distancing, tickets are limited and offered in timed slots (£11.75 per person for the geo experience). September is sold out, but there are slots available in October. More info here.

Surf’s up

The new inland surfing destination, The Wave (above), got off to a flying start when it opened in autumn 2019 – taking artificial surf to a new level as well as creating a genuine by-the-beach atmosphere. The Covid 19 pandemic stymied what would have been a fantastic first summer but the centre (at Easter Compton, north of Bristol) re-opened on August 1 and will be hosting the 2020 Korev Lager English Adaptive Surfing Open in October. Yay! More info here.
