Get your skates on and glide onto this year’s ice rink at Cathedral Green, with views of the river, and a twinkling backdrop of trees.

Whether you’re able to dance on the ice or you’re just trying to stay on your feet, there’s no better way to get in the Christmas mood. Grab a steamy hot chocolate or warming mulled wine from the Nordic bar next door. It’s the perfect Christmas time treat.

The covered Ice Rink has plenty of space to stand and watch and windows with views of the river, Museum of Making and Cathedral. Spectators can join in the fun by relaxing amongst the twinkling lights and listening to the festive playlist.

Adults and children of all abilities can enjoy whizzing around on the ice in our hourly sessions, with prices including skate hire. Free of charge sit-on & standing skate aids will be free to borrow for those feeling a bit wobbly on the ice. Available on a first come first served basis.
After your skate why not visit our on site food vendors.  Enjoy your food in the warmth of the tipi with a glass of mulled wine or refreshing cocktails & mocktails.
