Take to the ice, real ice fun for everyone!
The East Midland’s largest real ice rink will again be a central feature within Nottingham City Centre for the festive period.
Glide gracefully (we hope!) on our 1160 square metres of pristine ice whilst taking in the Market Square winter atmosphere. This year we will introduce a 5m x 16m kids ice rink and a 200m square ice path offering an even better ice-skating experience for the whole family.
Our impressive Alpine Ice Bar is being brought back for 2019 with completely new sculptures, designs and theming to keep you entertained over a schnapps or two. Did you know our drinks are served to you in real ice glasses from our Vodka bar?
You are more than welcome to bring in your camera for a memento of this special occasion; just don’t leave it lying anywhere as ice sticks!
