Ice Skating at National Ice Centre


Intensity Level 2

What is it?

Glide into the exciting world of ice skating, where children under the age of five skate for free. Ice skating is a lively and fun activity to enjoy with family or friends – it’s guaranteed to get your body moving!

What do I need?

Wear comfortable, warm clothes and cosy socks! Wearing a few layers is a good idea so you can take off or add clothing when you need to. You don't need to bring skates – we have hundreds of different skates in all sizes and styles and skate hire is included in the ticket price. There’s a great selection of food and drink in our Sub Zero café located alongside the ice rink.

Is it for me?

There is a range of ice equipment to help toddlers and youngsters with skating including snowmen, penguins, seals, etc. On-ice equipment is free to use in the Tots Zone or can be hired for £4.00 for the whole rink.

Want to bring your friends? The National Ice Centre also hosts birthday parties and 2 adults can skate for free per child attending. The parties include a one-house skating session, a dedicated party menu, ice equipment, and 2-4-1 vouchers to use in the future!
