Freeman's Quay Leisure Centre


Whether it's fitness, swimming or family fun that inspires your visit, Freeman's Quay Leisure Centre has a great range of activities including gym, exercise classes and two pools.

The government has announced that leisure centres and swimming pools can reopen later this month. We are looking at the government guidance and we'll provide updates on when our centres will reopen as soon as we have this information.

All memberships, including fitness, swimming and swimming lessons, will be frozen for the period of the closure and direct debit payments will be automatically adjusted. If you have paid up front for any membership, the period of the closure will be added to the end of your contract.

While we are closed, we hope you can remain physically active  - see our Keep active in your home information and look out for links on our social media, @DurhamThriveActive, providing information on how you can keep moving and stay healthy.
