The last few years have seen a steady growth in entertainment and leisure businesses in the UK. As people have more free time - and the disposable income - to indulge in a wide range of sporting, cultural and family pursuits, so there are increased opportunities for investors in this sector.
There’s a business to suit every type of buyer with budget likely to be the primary consideration. At the top of the tree are facilities such as gyms, private leisure clubs, spas and health farms which offer the potential for big profits but require significant financial investment. If you have expertise in a specific area, it’s possible to acquire smaller niche businesses, like martial arts gyms, children’s activity centres and sports and fitness facilities, for less. There are also plenty of businesses for sale specialising in the sale and hire of events equipment.
