5 of the Best Ice Rinks

11 December 2018 |

Get your skates on! No, we mean it – these rinks will be gone before the end of Winter, so don’t miss your chance to glide (or grapple) across the ice.

“The Ice Factor”, York
Forget the dubious name – this is the largest outdoor ice rink in the North of England and it boasts a 30ft glittering Christmas tree in the middle, which you can admire from all angles as you whizz across the ice. Located on the city outskirts at the York Designer Outlet, you’re also perfectly placed to grab a few gifts – or bag some sale bargains if you’re visiting after Christmas, as the rink is open until 6th January 2019.

Brighton Pavilion ice rink
Another show-stopping ice rink has been built in Brighton, where you can skate alongside the beautiful Pavilion and make all your friends on social media very, very jealous. This picture-perfect rink will be there until 13th January 2019, so it could be a great option for a fun day out during those wilderness days after Christmas, or in the New Year.

Winter Wonderland, Nottingham
Heading over to the East Midlands, you’ll find a cool 750 square metres of ice rink in Nottingham’s Old Market Square. The Council House (aka Nottingham’s City Hall) gives the surrounding skyline a flavour of Dickensian Christmas, while twinkling multi-coloured lights steer the mood into full festive swing.

The Market Square stalls and ice rink are open until 31st December.

Eden Project, Cornwall
The only indoor rink in Cornwall can be found at the Eden Project, where visitors to the spectacular educational facility can lace up and carve some edges in a heavenly setting. And you have plenty of time to enjoy the ice rink, which is open until 24th February 2019! For those keen beans looking way ahead, it could even be something to book for February Half Term…

Ice Skate Birmingham
The largest rink in the West Midlands has found a new home in New Canal St, close to Millennium Point, where it will sit alongside a Big Wheel. This year there’ll be a roof over the rink too, so any bouts of nasty weather won’t be enough to stop you showing off your toe loops.

Open daily until Sunday 6th January (closed 25th December)
