Colchester Leisure World Reception


Cowdray Avenue,


Enjoy the excitement of our two iconic (two) flumes (the only ones in Colchester), wild water rapids, waves, tipper buckets, interactive beach area, squirting fish and more in our family fun Leisure Pool.

We’ve got plenty to keep kids of all ages happy and active during the school holidays at Leisure World Colchester – whether it’s just for an hour or the whole day. During the holidays we also have extended opening hours for our Leisure Pool and extra inflatable fun with our Aquafun and Aquasplat sessions in the Fitness and Teaching pools.

Lifestyles members enjoy unlimited access to the site's impressive gym, Functional Training Area, 90+ fitness classes, 25m swimming pool and free parking. Fitness classes and swimming pool can be used on a pay as you go basis.

Get all the swimming equipment you need in our Zoggs shop and relax in comfort in our stylish coffee shop.
