Plan your visit

Advanced booking is 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.

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 arriving at least 30 minutes before your skating session is due to start.

Tickets are available online or from the Ice Rink Box Office 01962 857276.
