Ilkley Lido (pictured) This sky-blue complex, one of the few working lidos within easy reach of Manchester, is open 10am until 5.30pm at weekends for public swimming from May 2018.
What's more, it's less than an hour from Manchester - you can drive or take the train; it's just a short walk from Ilkley station.
Current temporary exhibition is Daughters of Necessity by Serena Korda.
Korda has selected some works by modern ceramicists to display alongside a collection of her own work.
Afterwards, there are lots of organic, vegan and dog-friendly cafes to explore in Hebden Bridge. The reason we’ve not included this one in our top five is because wetsuits are mandatory – with a few exceptions.
