The ice rink is now  open, with strict social distancing and safety measures in operation. Please note that covid-19 guidelines mean that you can only attend the ice rink with people from the same household or social support bubble.

We have put a lot of time into making sure you can enjoy your visit in a covid-secure way. Read about the measures we have in place, and other information you might want to know about your visit, in our FAQs.

Christmas at Ally Pally Ice Rink

Skating is a year-round activity at Ally Pally, but the ice rink feels particularly merry at Christmas time and gives an opportunity for a full-on-festive day out. Book onto one of our hour long public skate sessions every weekend in December and throughout the school holidays and enjoy whizzing around the rink to your favourite Christmas tunes. You can always head to the Ice Café afterwards for a Mulled Wine, Cinnamon Latte or Gingerbread Muffin. We also have our Christmas Ice Discos running every evening between 19th December and 3rd January. And if you fancy taking some lessons join us at our Coffee Morning Drop Ins every Wednesday morning with a festive coffee included in the price! To book simply Select a Date below.

Book tickets

To book a general skate simply select a date from the navigation to see what sessions are available on the day that you would like to visit. Sessions last 60 minutes. Due to Covid-19 you must pre-book online – we are not accepting payment on the door for public sessions or courses at this time. Please read our FAQs before you book your skating session as we’re doing things a little differently now.
