Very cheap tickets, considerably empty. Seats were comfy but toilets were disgusting!! Definitely go on a rainy day with kids not sure about a date night!

Oh dear! What was wrong with the toilets? We know they're old fashioned but they should be clean and functionable. Please do let the site management know next time if there is anything they can do to put something right.
