Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've taken the decision to close all of our leisure centres, swimming pools, community centres, Turkish Baths, our two museums, the Mercer art gallery and tourist information centres.

This is with effect from end of business tonight (Friday 20 March) and these buildings will remain closed until further notice. The decision is in line with updated government guidance and reflects the need for us to do what we can to encourage greater social isolation in light of the spread of the coronavirus. If you are affected by these closures, there is no need for you to get in touch. If you are a member of our venues, having swimming or diving lessons or other regular activities, your membership will be suspended and you will not be charged for April or May. If you have existing bookings, you'll be contacted over the coming days.


Fairfax Wellbeing and Community Hub offers a wide range of facilities and activities.

They include a main activity hall for clubs, activities and parties, badminton and basketball courts, a five-a-side pitch, and uni-hoc, table tennis, boccia, indoor bowls and volleyball equipment.

And if none of these are what you're looking for, why not run your own session? For advice on how to do this, contact the Community Development Officer on 01423 883614.

Facilities include a computer suite, meeting room, kitchen, changing rooms, baby changing facilities and car parking, and it's fully accessible for wheelchair users.

The hub, in Fairfax Avenue, Harrogate, is also available for children's parties.
