We are excited to provide you with a fun and festive event for all the family. 

Set within our on-site winter wonderland marquee we have ice skating and Mrs Claus’s bar & café where you will find all your usual refreshments plus festive treats that put a smile on even Santa’s face! And speaking of Santa… he will be with us too in his grotto, available for visits from the little ones (Santa must be booked in advance and will only be visiting during the Santa & Skate sessions). 

The campfire will also be roaring during our Santa & Skate sessions looked after by our friendly elves, s’mores and toasted marsmallows galore will be available!

Can we just turn up to skate or see Santa?

Can I just come and watch? 

Yes spectators are welcome. £2 off peak, £3 peak. 

 

What happens if it rains/bad weather? 

Our ice rink and Mrs Claus’ refreshments are indoors in our marquee on site so it’s an all weather experience! The Grotto is also indoors and our fire-pit is semi-sheltered too.

 

Is food and drink available on site? 

Yes we have a range of refreshments available including soft drinks, hot drinks, alcoholic drinks and hot dogs. We take card, cash and North Pole pounds. 

 

Will Santa be there everyday? Can we book just to see Santa? 

Santa will be available to book as an add on to your ice skating ticket, he is not available to book separately. It will state on the event description if Santa is there. He will be with us during our peak times including weekends and the week commencing 20th December. 

 

What time is the ice rink open? 

We will be open for Daytime Skate 10am-2pm (during school term time) and After School Skate 3.30pm-7.30pm (during school term time). Then from the 20th December we will be open 10am-6pm for Family Skate plus santa. We will also be open for adults 18+ on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. 

 

How long do you get to skate and when do I need to get there? 

You can arrive anytime, but you must arrive at least 15 minutes before your skate slot to enable you to be ready with your skates on on time. Skate slots last for 20 minutes. 

 

Is it real ice? 

No we have a synthetic ice rink which means it will be useable whatever the outside temperature, but it’s just as fun as real ice (and not so cold when you fall on your bottom!).
