Ice Rink

Monday 20 November 2017 – Sunday 7 January 2018

Our much-loved Ice Rink received a brand new makeover in 2016 to celebrate its 10th anniversary the most striking of which was the addition of a clear roof, guaranteeing skaters a rain-free experience whatever the weather! The clear roof and open-air sides continues to offer great views of the Cathedral and the unique experience of ice skating in this incredible setting.
