Hundreds of thousands of you enjoy our ice rink each year. We have regular skates aged 3 to 90 years old and cater for every standard imaginable, from first timers all the way up to seasoned pros and national champions. It’s perfect for friends, families, fitness or a day out. Skating has even been described as the closed you can get to the feeling of flying, without the leaving the ground! In short, it’s a pretty fun place to be – so come along and have a go!

Skating is a year-round activity at the Palace but the rink feels particularly merry at Christmas time and gives an opportunity for a full-on festive day out. Book onto one of our Christmas skate sessions or Christmas Club de Fromage discos and enjoy whizzing around the rink to your favourite Christmas tunes topped off with a mulled wine or festive treat in our Ice Café. The Christmas skate experience is available every weekend from 27 November and throughout the school holidays between 18 December and 3 January.

Please note that the Ice Rink will be closed on the following dates: 6/14/15 November, 6/7/8 December (4-5pm session only), 11 December and 12 December.
