A Glittering Glide…  Enjoy the perfect day out and skate with family and friends on our beautiful indoor ice rink ! Open now until the 18th February 2018! 


General skating sessions – Price: £7 (adult), £6 (child), £24 (any combination of four adults or children). Our public skate sessions are 40 minutes long and begin on the hour.

Penguin skating aids – Price: £4 per session. Our penguins are ideal for helping young skaters to gain confidence on the ice. They can be hired for any public skating session, but pre-booking online is advisable. The penguins are 91.5cm tall and although there is no minimum height restriction, the user does need to be able to walk and reach the handle. The maximum height for use is 120cm (3′ 11¼”). The charge covers the full 40-minute session and there are no refunds or part-refunds if the penguin is not used or is only used for part of the session. Bookings are non-refundable. 

Parent and toddler ice-play sessions – Price: £5 per child (includes accompanying adult). Special non-skating ice-play sessions for kids aged between 18 months and 5 years, with plenty of toys to play with. The sessions last 40 minutes, and children must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per two children). On Sundays these sessions last 45 minutes, from 9.30am to 10.15am, and the Eden Ticketing Desks will open at the earlier time of 9.15am.

Chilly Juniors sessions – Price: £6 per person. Fun skating sessions with races and games on selected Sundays for 6-12 year-olds. Participants need to be able to skate. Parents/guardians are also welcome on the ice during these sessions.
