The Castle Centre recently underwent a £20M redevelopment introducing a redeveloped sports hall, brand new state of the art gym, group exercise studios and swimming pools. Along with these facilities we also offer: indoor cycling studio, a new café, luxurious spa and changing facilities and a crèche.

These fantastic facilities allow us to offer a range of activities including: full range of sports hall activities including badminton, netball, as well as group exercise classes, group cycling, swimming lessons and much more.

All borough residents are now able to use the gym and swim for free* at Southwark Council leisure centres.

Centre Facilities


We offer a range of activities for both adults and children alike.

Most activities require booking in advance, so check the specific information relating to your activity in advance of attending. Certain activities are payable outside of any membership programme.



There are always questions and niggles when getting more active and our team are here to help.

We’ve collated some of the more common questions on the right, but if there’s anything else you have in mind, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Yes we do this is available for both Android and IOS and is available for free in the App stores. Please search “Everyone Active”.

If you have a swim membership this is no problem. You can move to any Everyone Active Leisure centre which has a pool.

This depends on your membership. If you have a pay as you go membership, you can pay as you go at any Everyone Active leisure centre.

If you have a single site membership you will only have access to the leisure centre covered within the membership.

With a swim membership you will get access the swimming pool covered in the contract and all other swimming pools within the group (except Westminster Lodge).

Customers with a multi-site membership get to use all sites, except Westminster Lodge. However if you use a different site to your local leisure centre more than twice a month, your membership might be updated to make the other site your main leisure centre. Keep in mind this may increase the costs of your membership.

Customers of Westminster lodge get to use all sites.

No, to book a lesson or a course you have to be a member of Everyone Active.

You do not necessarily need a contract though, you can book lessons and courses on a pay as you go basis too.

Everyone Active aims for  activity for everyone. Accessibility is very important to us. We have different activities made specially for those who are disabled. To ensure access quality is maintained we have fully qualified colleagues working with members with varying levels of accessibility.

To find out more about our accessibility, click Accessibility or visit Active Accessibility in our activity section.
