Private gyms & health clubs
Lambeth’s private gyms and health clubs offer a fantastic range of facilities and hi-tech equipment which may not be available in the public leisure centres. Many offer the addition of steam rooms, saunas and personal training facilities. However, please note that these clubs are private and therefore joining fees and monthly charges do apply. Nevertheless, most offer concessionary rates.
For more information please contact the clubs directly (telephone numbers in the yellow pages). Further information can also be found at your local library.
Parks & open spaces
Lambeth manages around 18 parks and open spaces in the area, which offer a variety of outdoor activities, such as tennis, golf and countryside walks.
