This December, get into the Christmas spirit and come ice skating at our magical winter wonderland at Riverside ice rink.
Skate in the snow under our beautiful decorations and Christmas lights, soak up the festive atmosphere and sing along to your favourite Christmas songs. Then warm up afterwards by enjoying some tasty treats at our mezzanine café.
You might even be able to catch a glimpse of a special guest visiting from the South Pole; our very merry mascot Pops the penguin!
You can enjoy skating in our winter wonderland from 4 December right through to New Years Eve.
Penguin aids will be available for hire for children to enjoy safe, fun skating.
Prices include skate hire.
*A family ticket is one adult and three children or two adults and two children.
Sessions start from 4 December.
