The former Planet Ice rink, which has closed near the Asda supermarket in Drayton High Road, is for sale, on lease, for a price on request.

The ice rink, on the former Norwich Sports Village site, opened in December 2009 but closed three years later.

The ice rink features a large, open-concept hall measuring approximately 24,000 square feet with an additional 1,150 square feet under a flat roof.

There is no more ice, but the area formerly used by skaters is made up of sand.
