Welcome to Runnymede Leisure Centre

Runnymede Leisure Centre is based in Benfleet behind Castle Point Borough Council Offices. It was extended from a swimming pool to include an Exercise Studio, Spin Studio and Fitness Suite in 2018.

We run a wide range of activities with something to suit everyone at Runnymede Leisure Centre and all our activities are great value for money.

Runnymede Leisure Centre is fully DDA (Disability Discrimination act) compliant and designed for disabled users to access all areas. We have disabled parking available, a Changing Places changing room and pool hoists to help you in and out of the pool.
