Christmas ice skating comes to Bath

In Bath, the Royal Victoria Park is going to be having a very special attraction in the form of an ice rink, where people are going to be able to skate throughout the festive season. This ice rink is going to open on 23 November, and is going to continue for the whole festive season.

This attraction is being called Bath on Ice and it is a very exciting addition to the Christmas attractions which are usually seen in the city. It is going to give an opportunity to all residents to come and take part in this fantastic winter sport, in a convenient location in the centre of the city. The ice rink is going to be 500 square metres, and it is really going to add a new dimension to the celebrations that occur in the city at Christmas.

Bath on Ice Director Simon Smith said “We’re absolutely delighted to offer people the chance to enjoy open-air skating on a real ice rink in the centre of Bath. Located right below the Royal Crescent, and with magical lighting adding to this unique experience, we hope we can create an event that Bath can be proud of. It is the perfect Christmas activity and will really get you in the mood for the festive season.”

Bath on Ice will provide top quality skates, an indoor skate changing area, indoor and outdoor viewing areas, ice stewards and push- along aids for children.

Festive ringside refreshments will also be available including hot chocolate and melted marsh mallows, roasted chestnuts and plenty of other heart-warming scrumptious treats.

The Rink will be open daily from 10am until 9pm starting Friday 23 November 2012 until Sunday 6 January 2013 with one-hour sessions costing from just £7 per person including skate hire. Gift vouchers are also available for purchase. Group rates are being offered with special discounts for Christmas parties , students and children. The rink is also available for exclusive use.
