It wouldn't be Christmas at Ruxley Manor without our indoor Ice Rink! The Ice Rink will be returning again in 2019, opening in October. We will have a lot more off peak sessions this year, toddler sessions, new SEN sessions and a whole host of other exciting events on the ice.

Sessions fill up fast so make sure to check the calendar and book early to avoid disappoinment! Read our Booking Terms here View the 2019-2020 Skating Calendar View Ice Rink FAQs

Session Types


Our Peak and Off-Peak Sessions are standard skate sessions with a capacity of 175 people on the ice plus our marshals. These sessions last for 45 minutes and are accompanied by music played over our PA System.

Little Penguins

Sessions designed for one toddler and one parent/guardian. £5 includes skating for 45 minutes, entry for both the toddler and parent/guardian and an appropriate skate aid.

SEN Sessions

New this year we have introduced reduced capacity (30 skaters and carers) with low or no music. We have chosen quieter store times for these sessions to limit any outside influence. £5 per skater with the carer going free. You will need to book a skate aid separately for these sessions.

Skate Aids


Penguin Skate Aids are perfect for toddlers or those unsteady on the ice. This Skate Aid allows the skater to stand on the ice supported by the penguin and skate round normally.


Banana Skate Aids are designed for two children to sit astride whilst pushed by another skater. This allows younger toddlers or those who don't want to skate to enjoy the ice rink whilst being pushed by a more confident skater.
