The Ipswich Gala bingo hall, close to Ranelagh Road, has been sold in a multi-million pound deal.

Property consultant Eddisons has sold the 29,000 sq ft bingo hall in Ipswich for close to the asking price of £5.5m.

The detached property, on a 2-acre site on Ipswich’s Orwell Retail Park, is occupied by Gala Bingo and generates an annual rental income of £377,138. Abdul Jambo, associate director at Eddisons, said: “Properties generating this scale of returns and with a good lease length are becoming increasingly rare in Ipswich.

“With nine years remaining on its lease and a healthy rental income of not far off £400,000 a year, the building was an excellent prospect and we are really pleased to have completed the deal for very close to the asking price.”
