“Indoor athletics”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Went to the British athletics here. Parking convenient on site and reasonably priced. Catering options limited compared with other similar venues. Seats did have a restricted view of the big screen.

“A great venue”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Have been here a couple of times for concerts. Just remember that it can take over 1/2 an hour to get out of the car park that is situated next to the NIA, so try checking out other car parks nearby.

“Cramped Seats”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went to see War of the Worlds in December Show was good but the venue is poor, it is meant to be a sports arena not a concert hall.
seats very cramped and narrow with very little leg room if you are over five foot tall.
My wife is five foot three and was cramped
I am over six foot tall and felt as if i had been packed in a suitcase for a couple of hours
access to the seats very steep not good for people with walking a disability

“Venue is fine”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The Venue itself is great. I've seen Cirque, Elton John and Dr Who here.

The downside is the parking, the toilets and the food and drink for sale is overpriced to the max.
