About the King Alfred Leisure Centre project

The King Alfred Leisure Centre plays an essential role in providing sport and leisure opportunities in Brighton & Hove. It's our largest sport and leisure facility in the west of the city. 

The current King Alfred Leisure Centre is well used, with strong demand for both pools, but parts of the building date from the 1930s and it does not meet modern standards.  

Refurbishing the King Alfred would be extremely costly, and it would never be possible to match the energy efficiency or space efficiency standards of a new building.

We're looking to bring forward plans for a new flagship sports and leisure centre which:

  • serves the needs of residents
  • offers modern and sustainable facilities

Evaluation stage

The evaluation of proposed sites for the new flagship King Alfred Leisure Centre is almost complete. A final choice of options for the new facility will be announced early in 2024.
