Enjoy a virtual tour of Tinside Lido overlooking the sea in Plymouth harbour, it’s consistently voted in the top 10 of Europe’s outdoor pools
This 360 shot was taken during the winter months while the pool was closed. Hopefully i’ll get a chance to head down again to catch it at it’s best during the summer.
