Chance to lease former Barclays building in Castletown

Manx National Heritage scopes interest in registered property

There's chance to lease the former Barclays Bank building in Castletown.

Manx National Heritage is seeking a new tenant for ‘No.1 Market Square’, a historic property dating back to 1829 which was originally the town's Market Hall.

MNH says the duration of the tenancy will be for a minimum of 10 years, with the lease available on a full repairing basis. 
Prospective tenants are asked to register an interest by the end of the month.

Steve Blackford, Head of Properties for Manx National Heritage said: “In addition to operating our museums and visitor attractions, Manx National Heritage have a wider estate of properties including residential properties, commercial premises and landholdings leased to tenants, generating income for our charity.  Many of these are registered historic buildings and located in some of the Isle of Man’s most stunning and precious settings.  This opportunity in Castletown will be of particular interest to businesses wishing to base themselves in the very centre of the Isle of Man’s ancient capital”.

Interested parties are asked to submit their request for an information pack by midday on 28 February 2024 to steve.blackford@mnh.im. 

MNH says prospective tenants will be invited to view the property before submitting their proposals to lease the building.
