Delighted to see Leamington’s Sea Water Baths listed in The Times as one of Â The 20 Best Lidos.
“Outdoor pools across the country are having a revival,” saysÂ Emily Sargent.
She points out that Lymington’s bath is “the oldest of its kind”. ItÂ was originally the King’s SalternÂ and one of 22 salt pans owned by Richard King who in 1805Â Â opened the bookshop (now Waterstones) in the High Street.
The salters became a sea water bath in 1833.
Today the healthy attractionÂ is also a feature for those walking the coast path from Milford-on-Sea to Leamington.
