Bristol South Swimming Pool
Dean Lane
Bristol, BS3 1BS

Site of the cliffhanger standoff between Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and Jim Moriarty, Bristol South Swimming Pool is also the place where a young Mark Gatiss learnt how to swim. Originally opened in 1931, the building is Grade II listed, meaning it is a particularly important building of more than special historic interest.
