  • Good place for events. Plenty of toilets and places to eat. Watch the prices though.
  • Easily accessible with plenty of places to eat across the road (Noose and Gibbet across the way good for a pint)
  • Excellent seating. We watched Disney on Ice and had a fantastic view of the stage. Prices can be expensive but worth it
  • Great arena. Strongly recommend you book a parking space in advance.
  • I have been to the Arena a few times now and although the actual events held there are brilliant, i just wish that the facilities could be better. The last show i went to was Disneys Frozen on ice with my 4 year old. Be prepared that if you are travelling by parking it expensive, limited and crazy. If you are travelling by tram its far better as its just across the road at centertainment and there is park and ride but again with limited places. There is no waiting area if you arrive a little early at the venue itself instead we were just told to either go to centertainment again or hang around outside in the cold for 30 minutes. Not a big problem as little one was excited about seeing frozen. Once it was time to go in the computers suddenly when down down so we had to wait a further15- 20 minutes until this was resolved. The down side to that was that they just closed the doors on us and told us to wait. If we had not been at the front of the queue we would not have known what was happening as they didnt announce the problem to the rest of the parents waiting. The Venue is easy to get to in reality and the ive not been disappointed by the events itself once ive got in so well worth it. I just wish there was a better waiting facility.
