Check out one of the most fun things to do this winter. With the festive season just around the corner, Bath offers lights, shopping, delicious treats, the Christmas Market in Royal Victoria Park and Bath on Ice right in front of the iconic Royal Crescent!
The huge outdoor ice rink gives skaters loads of space to learn or show off their skills. With 1000 square metres of ice, lights and music it’s a brilliant place to enjoy an afternoon with friends and family!
Want some insider tips? The rink is quieter on weekdays before the holidays start so book before December 14th. There are toddler and parent rates for morning weekday sessions. Plus a special kids’ skating-plus-hot-chocolate rate for £13.50.
The popular Glow Mini-Golf has beautifully lit trees all around the 18-hole course. After dark visitors play with glow-in-the-dark golf balls. The loser buys the drinks!
The rink-side Alpine Bar offers wood-fired pizzas, deluxe hot chocolates and festive drinks. Spaces can be booked for large groups and parties. Watch the skating with a mulled wine and warm those mittens by the log burner!
Opening on November 15th it’s open daily until 5th January (closed Christmas Day). 1 hour-long ice skating sessions start at 11.45 am (10.30 am at weekends and holidays). The bar is open until 10 pm at night.
Royal Victoria Park is a very short walk from Bath city centre. Bath Park & Ride buses stop by Bath on Ice while the Christmas Market is on. By train, it’s a quick stroll up through the city centre. Booking advised via www.bathonice.com or call 01225 436888. Winter, here we come!
