Ice Skating

Skating is great to have fun with friends and family while improving balance, flexibility, muscle tone and core strength. Public Skating sessions are suitable for everyone, all ages and all skill levels. Skate hire is available for all sessions from child size 5 to an adult size 13. And for the smaller ones who may need extra support, we have fun penguin skating aids to help build independence and confidence on the ice. 

Our late Tuesdays and Fridays sessions are Disco Ice, with flashing lights and loud music. Disco Ice is not suitable for under 5s. Skating aids not available.
