The property enjoys an easily accessible location just off Great Northern Terrace, about half a mile to the south east of Lincoln City Centre. The surrounding area is mixed-use in character with the predominant use in the immediate vicinity being office use, with nearby occupiers including Lincolnshire County Council and the local NHS Trust.

The existing fitness offer in the city is well dispersed, with the majority located around the south-west quadrant, meaning that there is an extensive catchment including the villages to the south east of Lincoln, for the operator of this fitness centre to draw from.

Lincoln is the administrative and main shopping centre for the County of Lincolnshire with an urban population of circa 130,000 and a total catchment population of close to 550,000, giving a total catchment spend of over £985 million. It is also a growing University city with over 15,000 students and staff based on the main campus in Lincoln, which contributes an estimated £250 million to the local economy. The University is located about a 1/3 of a mile to the west of the city centre, so again within easy reach of the subject property.


We understand that main services are available and connected to the property. These have not been tested and interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries to the relevant utility service providers in this regard.
