An excellent opportunity to acquire this substantial entertainment/leisure facility that could be used for a variety of purposes depending on a new tenants requirements. Formerly an indoor ice rink the property is now vacant and ready for the next occupier to create a unique and bespoke venue to suit their purposes.

In our opinion the building could also be used for other non-leisure sector purposes, subject to any consents as may be required, such as a storage or distribution centre or perhaps a television or film studio. Given the vast open space that the building provides it really requires viewing to appreciate the flexibility of the accommodation on offer.

The property is ideally located for its intended uses being situated on the A140 Norwich ring road and with adjoining businesses being the likes of Holiday Inn Express, David Lloyd Health Club and ASDA. The area has an abundance of businesses and commercial premises and so is a well known location for people to travel to whether it be for leisure, food, retail or business.

There is extensive car parking available and the use of this will be negotiated as part of the terms of the new lease.


The buildings are well known in the local area due to their unique dome shaped design with this particular property comprising of 3 adjoining domes to create the one unit.

Whilst from the outside the property may look irregular and curved in shape internally it is in fact a regular but large rectangular space under a 10m high domed ceiling.

Currently set out still as it was as an ice rink, the property has one main large open space with what was the rink and with surrounding tiered seating to two sides. There is an additional space which previously provided the reception facilities, toilets, boot hire, party room, offices, staff rooms and such like.

The real beauty of this building though is that the current internal fit out is all formed from stud partition and can easily be removed to leave one large open plan room measuring in the region of 24,000 sqft (comprising currently the 42 x 36m main room and 20 x 36m reception area) with a further 1,150 sqft (22 x 5m) adjoining space under a flat roof. This means the in-going tenant would have a complete blank canvas to create something entirely to their own desire and specification.

There are numerous entrance/exit points on each side of the building and vehicular access to the rear for deliveries via a roller shutter door and further pedestrian doors.
