I would be surprised that William Hill would take on a lease outside the Tenancy Act, in all modern leases you have a right to renew at the end of the lease, but leases that are strictly outside the 1948 tenancy agreement have no right of renewal. I am guessing that William Hill will still hold the master lease and your lease is an assignment of theirs...it is unlikely the landlord will have let a company William Hill walk away completely.
If you are in doubt, by all means feel free to photocopy your lease and send me a copy mate and I can advise you on it.
