Get fit at York Hall

Despite its other lives as a boxing venue and venue for Bangladeshi wedding receptions, York Hall, in Bethnal Green, is still first and foremost a leisure centre, with a swimming pool, gym and fitness centre.

An imposing Georgian building, opened in 1929, it has seen bouts between many great boxers over the years, and also now hosts a mildly controversial spa in its basement, using the Turkish baths installed to serve members of the Eastern European Jewish community who lived in the surrounding area.

It's an interesting building, with many original features and continues to serve the local area as it always has. For more information, see here, or visit http://www.gll.org/centre/york-hall-leisure-centre.asp
