Exciting news! The oldest outdoor swimming pool in the UK and western Europe, the Cleveland Pools is re-opening from Sunday 10th September to the public for year around swimming.
Bath has a long history of bathing in the city from the natural thermal waters to the cool water of the river and it will continue with the long-waited re-opening of the Cleveland Pools.
Originally, the Cleveland Pools was opened in 1817 as a gentlemen’s pool (a ladies pool was a later addition in the early 1900s!) and filled with water filtered from the river. Over the years, it has been used for swimming and lifesaving courses until it was closed in 1984 when more modern facilities were opened. It’s great to see that finally after 20 years, they have been restored and turned into a functioning lido for everyone again.
The Cleveland Pools will currently be open from 8am – 1pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and from 1pm – 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Swimming will cost £6 for an Adult and £4 for a Child or Concession.

It is a must-see attraction for both heritage and to have a dip this year!
