Outdoor Ice Skating at Ruxley Manor

the ice rink is now closed

Get ready to lace up your skates and hit the ice, because the much-loved ice rink is coming back to Ruxley Manor for Christmas 2023! After four long years, families and friends can once again glide across the real ice and make new memories together on our all weather, fully covered ice rink!

Join us from the 10th November 2023 to the 7th January 2024. Tickets are available from £5.00 per person!

There’s nothing quite as festive as gliding across the real frozen ice at Christmas time, listening to Christmas songs under twinkling lights, finished with a delicious traditional bratwurst and deluxe hot chocolate from the skate cafe. If skating isn’t quite your bag, simply grab a mulled wine and enjoy watching from the viewing platform!
