The Seawater Baths will open Saturday 28 April 2018 for the summer season

Lymington Sea Water Baths is now open for the summer season!

The Lymington Seawater Baths will open for the new 2018 season on Saturday 28 April.

The Sea Water Baths are owned and maintained by Lymington and Pennington Town Council. They are the oldest open air sea water baths in the UK. Built in 1833 they gained national interest for their health giving waters and natural mud minerals. They were given Grade II listed status in 2012. The Council’s commitment is to preserve and enhance this historic and iconic piece of man-made architecture and continue to use sea water from Lymington river to fill it.

Today the Baths offer lots of extra entertainment including giant inflatables and kayaking but the basics still remain in place: young and old alike are able to swim in the waters (there is a roped off area specifically for those wanting to do widths) and enjoy the stunning location with views over to the Isle of Wight.

But the prices for prices still remain very competitive for a whole day’s entertainment for all the family! All your questions are answered here:
