Located in the centre of Stockport, next to the train station, Life Leisure Grand Central provides first class fitness and swimming facilities. The gym houses the latest fitness equipment and has a dedicated performance zone and aerobics studio with weeky programme of classes. Grand Central is also home to Stockport's only 50m swimming pool and Stockport Metro, the UK's most successful swimming club and learn to swim programme.
We are pleased to announce our fantastic NEW Health Suite at Life Leisure Grand Central is now open, offering great facilities including a sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy pool and aromatherapy room.
In order to manage the capacity, access will be monitored so more customers can benefit from using the facilities. On each visit, you will need to sign in at reception and collect a wristband which will give you access to the health suite area for 90 minutes.
The Health Suite opening times are available on our opening times section of this page.
If you have any questions or require more information do not hesitate to contact a member of the team at Grand Central directly on 0161 474 7766 or email the team today.
We look forward to welcoming you at our brand new Health Suite soon!
The small swimming pool/Oasis splash pool closed on Sunday 11th March and currently remains closed whilst we complete works on the new Splash pool and flumes/slides. We are working on the final stages of the project with the contractors and we hope to announce an opening date shortly.
Baby Splash & Swim Tots will continue as normal but will take place in the main pool. We apologise for any inconvenience but we look forward to opening the fantastic new Splash pool and slides. As soon as we have a confirmed opening date we will update via our website and social media.
From Wednesday 3rd January '18, any visitor using Life Leisure Grand Central will be granted two hours FREE PARKING if using the NCP multi-storey car park. Please be aware that any visit longer than two hours will be charged at the normal rate including the first two hours. Customers must validate their parking ticket using the machine at reception, with the two hours parking offer available only to Life Leisure Grand Central customers.
Home to Stockport Metro, the UK's most successful swimming club, world class swimmers and Olympic medalists train here on a daily basis. The Stockport Metro programme also offers lessons for complete beginners from 6 weeks old. For more information contact the Swim Team on 0161 429 0401. For general centre enquiries please call 0161 474 7766.
PLEASE NOTE: The Children's pool is currently closed until mid Summer 2018 whilst we upgrade the area and install new slides/flumes.
With agreed funds for 2017/18 of approx. £5m for the Life Leisure estate, we are working with Stockport Council to improve and upgrade some aged mechanical and electrical equipment at various Life Leisure sites with more modern and efficient equipment. This will help improve the customer experience as we will have greater control of the environment in facilities, e.g. temperatures in both swimming pools (where applicable) and the building generally. By installing more efficient equipment Life Leisure will also become more eco-friendly, reducing our carbon footprint, with our ultimate aim being to offer carbon neutral centres. These major works will present us with some operational difficulties along the way, which we will try to minimise, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will provide more details as they become clearer.
