About the ice rink
Our open-air real ice rink can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. We have a team of trained ice stewards who ensure that our rink is safe and well maintained. Ice skating sessions last for 1 hour – this includes time to fit your skates so expect to have approximately 50 minutes on the ice. Free skate hire is included in the ticket price.
