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.

Opening times

All our leisure centres are temporarily closed until further notice.

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. Any bookings that are affected during the closure period will be fully refunded and we will contact you directly to arrange this.

We will be monitoring government guidance around social distancing closely and will reopen the centre as soon as we can.

While we are closed, we hope you can remain physically active and invite you to look out for links on Thrive Active Durham Leisure on Facebook, providing information on how you can keep moving and stay healthy.

See our Leisure centres and exercise events (changes to services) page for the latest information.
