Thetford Riverside

Board News

The £8m Thetford Riverside complex will significantly improve the leisure offering in the town for both residents and visitors. It includes a brand new cinema, a hotel, and a series of restaurants. The regeneration of the site will also act as a catalyst for further development in the town and across the district.

The cinema, run by The Light, has three, fully licensed screens which all boast incredible 2D and 3D visuals with state of the art digital picture and sound. The cinema also has a café and bar.

National hotel chain Travelodge offers 64 attractive, modern bedrooms at the leisure complex. They are all great value, making the hotel a good choice for those looking to stay in Thetford as part of a leisure break as well as those travelling to the area for business purposes.

Thetford Riverside will also be a hot destination for people looking for a tasty meal. A Grand Central American Bar & Grill restaurant, run by TLC Inns, is expected to open in early 2017, offering American favourites such as barbecue wings, macaroni cheese, lobster, hot dogs and burgers, salads, and a selection of steaks. The company will invest around £450,000 in the opening of the 156-seat restaurant and will create at least 30 new jobs.

Change of use planning application

Tenants for the leisure complex's four other units are expected to be announced in due course.

The development was delivered by Breckland Bridge, an innovative joint venture between Breckland Council and The Land Group. For more information about Thetford Riverside visit Breckland Council's website at:
