We allow wheelchairs and pushchairs onto the ice rink.
This is often the very first time some of our guests have ever had the opportunity to go on real ice.
We just ask that adult supervision is available at all times and all wheels are clean.

We are independent and there is no harm in asking. You can ask for a smaller cup in our restaurant for instance, change your skates halfway through skating for a comfier fit (some people wear two pairs of socks and forget to up a size!), or that we can deliver bulky items to your ho-ho-home – just ask we’ll see what we can do.

We were so touched by recent visitor 5 star ratings and lovely comments on Facebook that we offered 20 pairs of FREE ice skating tickets to those people. A lovely review takes seconds to write and benefits us immensely, so we are always pleased to receive them. It also puts the boss in a happy mood and we can offer more in the future!!
