  • Visited a couple of times recently, once for a music concert, the other for a stand up comedy gig. Good views, but sometimes the action can seem some distance away, the big screens certainly helped. V...  more »
  • Great show, easy to get to, seats are a bit hard when you have been sat for over two hours. It's a very good Manchester attraction.  more »

  • A superb venue, approached up some steps in Victoria Station. Security was efficient, but friendly, and some of the people actually seemed to be intelligent, rare among security personnel. We were shown down a long flight of steps to our seats. I'm not sure whether the venue is suitable for disabled people. We didn't see a flat way in. The concert was excellent. The acoustics are very good. Despite the crowds it was easy to get out afterwards, as there were plenty of exits.
  • Overpriced food and drink, toilets can soon get messy during a gig, but the venue itself is absolutely amazing. Great acoustics, awesome atmosphere. Saw Bring Me The Horizon here, and the visuals and lights were unbelievable. Great night
  • Lovely place. Went for the boxing and had a great evening. Security top notch and everything at hand just outside the arena.
  • Good size arena, easy to get to. You can spend time in Manchester before the event and always be in good walking distance from the arena
  • Was here for the UFC event in october. Really well set up venue. However some of the stewards didn't really know the layout of the place and the queues for the food and drink were prohibitively long
