Even in mid-summer, swimming outside can be a little uncomfortable.
Brits who missed out on their summer holidays are looking for a refreshing place to swim – but lido’s can get cold!
Luckily, a new pool in Cornwall has just changed the game.
The £1.8m Jubilee Pool in Penzance is the UK’s first ever geothermal lido, reports The Mirror.
You can take a dip in heated sea water surrounded by stunning sea views.
It’s like Britain’s answer to the impressive Blue Lagoon in Iceland.

The 410m deep geothermal well keeps the pool toasty up to temperatures of 35 degrees Celcius.
So, grab your cozzie, not your wetsuit.
To get such Mediterranean temps, warm water is pulled up from the geothermal well.
Then, the heat is extracted using pumps which flood it through the pool before pushing cooler water back into the earth.
The nifty system claims to sustain the heated pool with a low carbon footprint.
The costly investment also bagged the pool some new changing rooms, a cafe and community space.

There are three sections to the attraction – a main pool, geothermal pool and beginners pool.
The main pool can usually handle 600 guests (though during Covid this is kept to 150).
The geothermal pool hosts 50 people usually (down to 15 during social distancing).
You have to book a slot to swim but the pool is open for business right now.
We can't wait to save our space and jump in!
Head to the Jubilee Pool website for more info or to book.
