I am updating my review of Crystal Palace sports centre as a lot has changed in the last few years. I have trained worldwide during the last 35 years, have a military background and trained in boxing/mixed martial arts, as well as prepping for annual skiing trips. Crystal palace sports centre now seems to have it all as some major... More

I was a "Better" member there and the staff is quite apalling. They all behave like they hate their job, they are not helpful. When classes are cancelled they let you know, if they do, at the very last minute with no apology or explanation. The facilities are amazing, this place could be so much better if better managed!

We came here as Grandparents to watch someone in the British schools Biathlon. Just finding the way in proved to be a major challenge - the signposting into the park directing you towards the Sports Centre is non-existent. The next challenge was to find somewhere to park - facilities were hopeless for a "National Event". All of the facilities look... More

We came here for the British schools biathlon. The sports centre is quite tired and has definitely seen better times. However, there aren't many places where you have a 400m track right next door to a 50m pool. There is also plenty of seating for spectators to watch the events. The track is in good condition. The pool not so... More

Despite the attractive price, the facilities are old. Maintaining looks bad. The rooms are not very clean. The breakfast is reasonable. Coffee, bread, cheese and iorgurte. The staff are polite and helpful. The big advantage is the location, especially if you will be competing at the Crystal Palace, as was my case. The units are divided into A and B,... More

Had looked forward to seeing an iconic sports arena but very disappointed on how shabby the whole place is, and sign posting is awful, and not user friendly.

If you're looking for a good place to have a good day, i suggest coming to Crystal Palace. There is a beautiful, vast park,complete with a maze, sports centre and cafe. This park is between the areas of Penge, Anerley and Crystal Palace, so travel and exploring after visiting the park is easy and efficient.
