“Thanks to the railway’s improved services, more tourists are taking the plunge and visiting my pool every year” Susan Stuart, Jubilee Pool

- Jubliee Pool has already seen quite a big boost in tourist numbers thanks to rail improvements.

Jubilee Pool on Penzance's Promenade is Cornwall’s much-celebrated Art Deco lido, overlooking the sea the pool is the perfect place for locals and tourists of all ages to swim safely in fresh seawater. Susan Stuart director of the community owned company that runs Jubilee Pool has been thrilled with the effect of rail improvements in the area.
“The railway really is the lifeblood of Penzance supporting our tourism industry and getting local people to and from their workplaces.”
“In my business I have been told by tourists how they now choose to travel by train for the experience: they get to travel on newer more comfortable trains and wake up to the sunrise over Mount’s Bay and St Michael’s Mount.”
Thanks to the proximity of the local rail station it’s very easy for people to hop off the train and plunge into the pool.
“We’ve already seen quite a big boost in tourist numbers.”
