Portishead Open Air Pool

It’s been really hot here in the UK the last few weeks (unusual right? :P), so this weekend we decided to check out an open air pool in Portishead, which is not too far from us :)

The pool’s a decent size, with 1/3 of it being shallow, so safeer for younger children, and the other 2/3 gradually getting deeper.

I’m not sure if the water is heated at all, but when the sun’s out the temperature is quite nice ^^

There’s a small cafe on site, but the main space along the outside of the pool is a series of concrete steps and platforms, where people pick a spot and set up base for the duration of their stay :)

It wasn’t too busy when we arrived in the morning, but there was a constant stream of people arriving, so by mid-day it was starting to fill up around the outside of the pool.

It’s a great place to go on a hot summer day ;)
and of course Y’ made a yummy picnic lunch for us ^-^
