40 Hyde Road, Hackney, London, N1 5JU


The centre was built in the 1960s, but has been regularly modernised and refurbished to provide everything that 21st century customers expect.

The gym covers a full workout for both cardio and resistance work, in two separate areas. There is a wide choice of machines, including equipment from Technogym. As well as ranks of rowing machines and treadmills, there is a good range of free weights and Swiss balls. A reserved stretching area gives space for that post-workout cool down.

The centre also has a large leisure pool with a waterslide, and offers group exercise classes in the fitness studio. The new functional zone adds an extra dimension to workouts and fitness classes. This area provides specialised equipment including an Xcube frame, and increased stationary bike capacity. A climbing wall, squash courts and a sports hall provide even more choices. After your workout, the health suite offers aromatherapy and a steam room to leave you feeling fully relaxed. (Extra charges apply).

A new development is the women-only classes and workout sessions. These are open to females aged 14 or over. The centre continues to expand its role as a health centre for the community.

With so much to do and plenty of qualified staff, Britannia Leisure Centre is the perfect place to help you to get fit.

Not amazing. No squat rack. No real place to do deadlifts. quite busy. People workout in corridors.
Though its ok if you can't find another gym and need a quick work out.

Lots of space, good range of equipment, all in good working condition. Toilets were not very clean or cared for.

Disappointed with the pool. Very much a leisure pool with no possibility of lane swimming. Changing facilities basic.

Easy to access and start using gym. Reasonable range of decent quality equipment and able to access without waiting. Adequate for a routine workout.

Only 2 free weight benches one of which was broken and wouldn't recline. Running machines are old, can't program the speed you want which is useless for interval training. Generally dirty floor and machines. Better gyms in the area.
