Seating much improved , and additional food outlets very welcome...but, oh dear, the toilets! Although refurbished we found cubicles with broken locks, wash basins without water, and strange flashing lights.

We visited the Barclaycard arena in January to see the impractical jokers. The layout wasn't great our seats were on the floor but we couldn't see much and had to watch via the big screens. The drinks were very overpriced and literally on exiting the arena I was nearly trampled on it was ridiculous. The arena itself was clean and... More

Visited for Strictly Come Dancing and was very impressed by the experience. Bit of a queue to get in, but otherwise everything worked very well; minimal queuing for bar, merchandise or the very clean toilets. Paid quite a bit extra for front row seats but it was undeniably worth it and really made the whole experience incredibly memorable.

been to this venue many many many times!! great staff, be prepared to queue outside to get in (no matter what time you turn up)! you'll also queue to get out if you're driving so possibly book a local hotel. easy to get to, decent amount of food and drink choices, however we always try one of the local restaurants...

We arrived early, but the staff let the public in as it was cold and raining. Easy to get to, super staff. We were on a lower level, we are very tall, but we managed, we are slim. If you are not you might have a problem. The couple beside us could not fit into the seats! Toilets were easy... More

Saw A Day To Remember here (going to avoid the puns) and had a fantastic night. I parked on the venues multi-storey car park and arrived around the same time the doors were supposed to open, didn't have any issues finding a space (had to go up a few floors but still loads available); the car parking fee is £6.50...

Had as a gift from family who booked through Amplify which included parking, meal and the show. No guidance to strangers from parking to arena which caused us unnecessary walking. The staff and meal in the restaurant was excellent. On entering the arena we discovered our seats were down several steps which would have been difficult for we "oldies". Approached... More

I booked tickets as a Christmas present for my wife with an upgrade to include meal and drinks. The meal was excellent and the staff extremely helpful. I liked the fact that you could return to the dining area in the interval and have drinks waiting on your table. Excellent experience
