By the end of this month, there will be Flumes in the heart of East London at the all new and exciting Brittania Leisure Centre!
Zoom zoom zoom! We’re going to get a flume! Does anything make you feel like a kid again more than the excitement of a water slide? Can’t wait to see those cheeky happy faces?
Hoxton’s amazing new Britannia Leisure Centre is set to open its doors on the 30th of June. Part of the largest public sector investment in the area for a generation, the new leisure centre will bring a state of the art sporting facility to the heart of the East End.
Developed by Hackney Council, the building boasts rooftop football pitches and tennis courts with panoramic views of London, two large swimming pools, a leisure pool with jets, a paddling pool, with play features, a fitness studios, and a cafe and toilets that also serve Shoreditch Park.
Designed for all abilities, there will be accessible changing areas, pool pods for wheelchair users and a pool with sensory and interactive light features.
The centre will be operated by Better, the charitable social enterprise that runs all Council leisure centres, with affordable prices for local people and discounted memberships for those on low incomes.
It would also be awesome if they could upgrade their app…
But still, this will be such a joy for East London families and so welcome after the year we have all had!
