What to wear?

It is essential that you wrap up warm on the rink and we advise all skaters to wear warm layered clothing and if possible a waterproof jacket.

Hats are recommended as hoods are not allowed to be worn up on the ice rink.

Gloves and thick socks are also advisable – gloves are available to purchase in the shop.

We have a limited number of lockers available to store bags whilst skating – no bags are permitted on the ice and should not be left unattended at any time.

The use of cameras, music players or any hand-held equipment is not permitted whilst skating.


With skate hire we provide ice skates with quick fastening buckles as opposed to the traditional lace up skates.

– Our ice skates range from child size 7 to adult size 14.

We also have a limited number of double bladed Bob Skates available for very small feet.

– Bob Skates are adjustable and are suitable for child size 6 to child size 9.

You can bring your own ice skates to use (figure & hockey style only) but you must have purchased an activity token or day pass to use the ice rink.

Penguin Skating Aids

We have a limited number of penguins available to support younger skaters.

We follow the manufacturer’s height recommendations for using the penguin skate aids and the maximum height to use a penguin is 1.2m with skates on – There are measurement signs located at the ticket office and the ice rink.

The penguins are free of charge to use and are only available on a first come first served basis as they are in heavy demand.


All minors should be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.

We advise that children under the age of 4 should not skate.

All children under the age of 8 should be accompanied on the rink by an adult – up to a maximum of 5 children per adult.

Adults supervising children aged 8 to 17 may watch from the side of the rink.
