Please note:

A swimming session for women only, aged 16 and over, operates in both pools every Monday between 8pm and 10pm.
This fantastic leisure centre, located on the banks of the River Thames opposite to the Woolwich Ferry Terminal has a great range of activities and state of art facilities. Operated by Better, this is one of the top rated gyms in the area.

If you’re visiting the Waterfront Leisure Centre you’ll be working out in one of South London’s most well equipped gyms. With state of the art Technogym fitness equipment to Hammer Strength machines you have over 100 stations to choose from and complete an all-round workout.

A 25 metre swimming pool with 4 lanes is perfect for those swimming for fitness or looking to relax and unwind after their workout. If you’re visiting with the family there a leisure pool with water slides and pool features so plenty of fun for everyone. Additional charges apply to use the pool, please check with reception.

For those looking to get fit and socialise you can hire one of the courts for a racquet game, 4 badminton courts and 2 table tennis courts can be hired. If you want something a little more energetic then squash is perfect! Book one of the 4 courts, we recommend you book up to 6 days in advance as they are very popular.

There’s a crèche for under 5’s so you can enjoy your workout with peace of mind. A 2 hour limit applies and booking is essential.

I had a few teething problems trying to redeem my voucher code as the staff don't get them very often and their computer system wouldn't recognise it. It was all sorted by phone and the woman on the reception desk couldn't have been more helpful.

Overall it was a good gym, two different sections Cardio - weight and and a Heavy weight training room with access to a lot of weighted machines etc. Good space, but I cannot say as I have been once.
