Absolutely lovely rink, skate hire available for those without. Hot dogs and cola for an after-skate treat!

Went to see the darts and amazing atmosphere and had great seats. Easy to book online last year. Food and drink and Programmes are expensive and always a queue and not easy to get out of seats if in middle so suggest aisle seats when booking which il do next time

Came to watch Disney on ice, which was an amazing show. The waiting staff for our box were very friendly and efficient as were the rest of the staff at the arena. The only thing I would say is that food is quite expensive as are any souvenirs purchased from downstairs which is why I have given 4 stars instead... More

Had a lovely evening here for Disney - great seats 2 rows back from the ice, with comfy seats & plenty of leg room - unlike other arenas! From what I could see most seats had a good view. The staff were friendly & helpful. Parking is a pain - we don't know the area & didn't find the city... More

Visited the Capital FM Arena last night for the Disney on Ice show - the show and arena was brilliant - easy to access and great seats. The only down side is the over priced drinks and food. £3.20 for a drink of Cola which tasted flat and 80p per Donut which was the smallest donut EVER!!!
