Ice skate under ‘real snow’ at St Mary’s Cathedral this June and July

Go ice skating on your lunch break this winter. For three weeks over June and July, you’ll be able to ice skate every day – and late into the evening – at an open-air ice rink at forecourt of St Mary’s Cathedral. There’ll be real snow (pumped out of a machine) and you’ll be able to warm up with a mulled wine or hot chocolate from the apres-ski food vendors. Make a night of it and get dinner from Bao Burger and Taiwan Noodle House, the German Sausage Hut or a chip-on-a-stick from Tornado Potato. Plus there’ll be an ice slide – which sounds dangerously fun. For nervous skaters, ask for a ‘Kanga’ – it’s a pushalong aid to help with balance. Wheelchair-users, the rink is fully accessible. Tickets are available at the gate but buying online saves you a couple of bucks.
