Plan your visit

Please give yourselves plenty of time to travel, park and get to the Ice Rink. At weekends during the Christmas Market the site is extremely busy and queuing systems are in place.

We suggest aiming to arrive at least 30 minutes before your skating session is due to start.

Advanced booking is also highly recommended to secure the best slots and avoid queuing at the ticket office on arrival. Our covered Ice Rink guarantees a rain-free skate, giving you the confidence to book your tickets in advance without worrying about the weather.

Tickets will be available from the Ice Rink Box Office 01962 857276 or online from 1 September 2019.

These are not bookable in advance and are hired on a first come first served basis. Skating props are provided at the management’s discretion and may not be available on certain sessions. They are designed for children under 10 years of age as a “fun” item and not an aid to skating. A height restriction of up to 120cm applies.
