Lymington Sea Water Bath is ‘a top lido’

Delighted to see Leamington’s Sea Water Baths listed in The Times as one of  The 20 Best Lidos.

“Outdoor pools across the country are having a revival,” says Emily Sargent.

She points out that Lymington’s bath is “the oldest of its kind”. It was originally the King’s Saltern and one of 22 salt pans owned by Richard King who in 1805  opened the bookshop (now Waterstones) in the High Street.

The salters became a sea water bath in 1833.

Today the healthy attraction is also a feature for those walking the coast path from Milford-on-Sea to Leamington.
