Skating is a fun and enjoyable way to stay active and improve your balance and coordination while spending time with family and friends. At Cambridge Ice Arena, our ice rink provides extensive lessons, courses, and public ice skating sessions for every ability. From beginners to experienced skaters, there’s something for everyone looking to hone their skills or have a fun day out with family and friends.
Have fun on the ice with family and friends. Whether you are a superstar in training or a beginner stepping out on the ice for the first time, our public ice skating sessions are suitable for all abilities and open for general public (minimum age 3+).
For little ones who may need extra support, we have polar bear skating aids that can be their companion on the ice and help them find their feet. Pick it up quickly, as these fun little aids are extremely popular, and there can be a wait for one during peak sessions.
Skate hire is available and costs £2.50 per session. Skate sizes range from a child size 7 to an adult size 15, but feel free to bring your own.
Please note that there is a safety height restriction of 1.2m (with skates on) for our skate aids.
