WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE VISITING THE ICE RINK
We have also implemented additional sanitisation and social distancing measures to protect the health and safety of customers and staff during this time:
- Disinfection and sanitising of frequently touched surfaces between sessions

- Pre-book your session online or via our Better UK app
- Face masks are no longer mandatory, but customers can choose to wear them if they prefer to.
- Spectating is currently unavailable, except for supervising parents/guardians.

PUBLIC ICE SKATING
Our public ice skating sessions are suitable for all ages and abilities whether you are a superstar in training or a beginner just setting out. For the smaller ones who may need extra support, we have fun penguin skating aids or snowmen that can be their companion on the ice and help them find their feet. Pick up your penguin or snowman quickly as these fun little fellows are extremely popular and there can be a wait for one during peak sessions. (Available to hire from reception only. £4.00 for 30 minutes. Card payment only. We regret pre-reservation is not possible.)
Please note all sessions have to be pre-booked online. Download our Better UK app, or click below.
