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

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.
