The Castle leisure centre
After providing leisure services to local residents for almost 40 years, the leisure centre at Elephant and Castle closed its doors in June 2012.
The exciting redevelopment programme for the brand new Castle leisure centre is well underway and is expected to be opened in spring 2015. Please see 'Project news' below for an update on the redevelopment project.
The new centre named The Castle will provide:
- Six lane 25 metre swimming pool
- Learner pool
- Four (badminton) court sports hall
- Fully equipped gym and indoor cycle studio
- Two exercise class and dance studios
- Crèche and café
Southwark Council Leisure Centres
We have five other leisure centres in the borough where you can enjoy a wide variety of different sports and activities ranging from rowing, kayaking and sailing at Surrey Docks Watersports Centre, to swimming in one of our pools at Camberwell, Dulwich, Peckham and Seven Islands.
If you prefer the buzz of a friendly gym then you'll find one in all five of our centres along with open air gym equipment at Geraldine Mary Harmsworth, just near to the Imperial War Museum, where you can also book to play tennis, netball, football and basketball.
You can download the exercise and swimming timetables for all leisure centres.
