It's a modern arena with good views wherever you sit. The stewards are friendly and helpful and there are bars which sell cask beer from Purity. It's a long way from the city and parking is expensive, and although there is an Arena Rail Station it did not seem to be functioning on the evening which we attended. The attached... More

Went to the Ricoh arena to watch a football match. Most seats in the arena would give you a good view of the pitch. There are plenty of food and drink outlets, but they are quite expensive for a football match, possibly because the venue is used for concerts as well. I think you would get a better atmosphere at...

Very good venue, stayed at Hilton hotel and had a view on rugby court (room 231) security is top notch, enough possibilities for eating and relaxing.

We were among the mad crowd who queued for a couple of days for their place at the front of the stage - the staff at the Arena (and the on-site Hotel and Casino) could not have been friendlier or more accommodating.

Venue is good although no where near as impressive as Wembley. Sound was very good though and a decent atmosphere. Was in a block at the side of the stage and had a great view of the concert, only moanis that you cant really get parking cheaper than twenty pounds locally on event days.

I went to see Bruce Springsteen. There were a choice of outlets, hot dogs, pies, chips. All but the hot dogs had a huge queue so I chose a hot dog. It was basic (no onions) but reasonable. There were choices of non alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. A hot dog and bottle of water was £6.50! You can take empty... More
