Sneak preview of new sports centre in


Kings Cross Camden Council has approved plans for a brand new, environmentally friendly, public sports facility as part of the Kings Cross development. The new centre will provide much needed opportunities for accessible sports and physical activity in the Kings Cross and Somers Town area.


The leisure facilities include a 25m swimming pool and a small ‘lagoon’ fun pool with water features for children and their families. The Spa area will appeal to adults as a place to relax and unwind after a vigorous workout. The 100 station, state of the art fitness gym will have superb views over the pool and two spacious exercise studios will enable a wide range of group exercise, dance and relaxation classes.


Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), who already run Camden‘s other sports facilities, has agreed to run the new Centre at Kings Cross. They expect the centre to become very popular and have in excess of 4500 members and 500,000 customer visits by 2015 – a year after it opens in 2014.


The building will also include a new library, office space and public café.
