Horsforth has lots of local amenities, but it is somewhat quieter than areas closer to the city centre.

However, there is still plenty of choice when it comes to fitness and outdoor activities.

We have put together a list that combines facilities on your doorstep and those within the wider community.

There’s a huge choice of gyms, sports clubs, and parks for you to choose from.

  • SlimFitLife (ladies-only), Tithe House, Town Street
