Absolutely delightful venue! We went to the Sunday 14:45 session, the sun was setting while we were skating, the lights adding to the already magical backdrop of the palace. Unfortunately though the rink itself was waterlogged under at least an inch of water and there were so many skaters on the ice, it was difficult to get around - as if the challenge of staying upright was not enough already;) But if you're prepared to get severely wet, it's worth every penny!

Set in front of Henry VIII's picturesque old pad, this 900-metre-square rink has space for 250 skaters. Sessions last an hour and wheelchairs are welcome on the ice except during the last session of the day. Ice guides are available for supervised group skating (£32 per session). Skating lessons for 5-16 year-olds are also available (and sell out fast so early booking is advised). Online booking is recommended.
