Nearly 2.5m people visited Plymouth Dome when it was open

Three firms have plans to take over an empty tourist attraction on Plymouth's seafront, the city council says.

The Plymouth Dome visitor centre on the Hoe has been closed for more than four years.

Although nearly 2.5m people visited it when it was open from 1989 to 2006, the attraction cost the council about £200,000 a year to run.

A firm of property consultants had been trying to find suitable users to take it on, the council said.

The identity of the interested companies has not been revealed.
