London Horizons is a high performing leisure club and accommodation facility located in Stockwell, South London. Due to the business’ significant success to date, London Horizons has grown significantly since its establishment and is now looking for new management to take this excellent opportunity to new heights.

London Horizons Leisure Club is a state-of-the-art health club and gym, complete with an indoor 15m swimming pool and adjacent jacuzzi, three exercise studios, a 3G 7-a-side football pitch, a 10 person sauna and a 6 person steam room. The Club offers classes in yoga, pilates, spin, circuits, boxercise and bodytone. The changing rooms are recently refurbished and fitted with pin-entry lockers. Members also have access to swimming lessons and professional sessions in physiotherapy, personal training, massage and acupuncture, providing a holistic approach to health and fitness.

Centrally located, London Horizons Accommodation offers 50 well-furnished and comfortable rooms, all within easy access of Central London’s most famous attractions. As well as catering to guests from around the world, Horizons has developed strong relationships and works closely with universities, colleges and agencies to ensure the accommodation on offer is of a high quality that meets the needs of university and college students. All guests have access to a continental breakfast, free laundry service, Wi- Fi and Sky television. In addition, guests also have full access to the London Horizons Leisure Club, communal kitchens and comfortable seating areas. The Accommodation is also staffed around the clock, and has secure, card-entry door systems.

Since its creation, London Horizons has had a prominent role in the shared success of the neighbouring Durand Academy which has seen both the business and the school thrive. London Horizons has gift aided its profits after management costs and overheads to Durand Education Trust, an independent Trust established with the charitable objective of supporting the development of outstanding opportunities in education for children at the Durand Academy. As a result, the school has been able to dramatically improve its facilities, employ more staff, reduce class sizes, offer subsidised organic dinners, give free swimming lessons and provide subsidised after school provisions, helping to deliver the best education to its intake. The organisation which successfully bids for London Horizons will be expected to maintain this arrangement, and this will be a condition of the tender.
