Ice skating at Christmas is such a lovely tradition and something we always look forward to over the festive season. It goes hand in hand with snow, Christmas lights, festive decorations and the smells of mulled wine and cinnamon!
Ice skating at Christmas
We love going ice skating as a family and enjoying a hot chocolate aftwerwards! It’s the best kind of family fun and we often add an ice skating experience to a festive day out, after Christmas shopping, a day at Christmas events or before going out for a nice meal as a family.
I thought it would be good to put together all the ice skating rinks across Berkshire to give you inspiration for ice skating this Christmas. Many are real ice rinks and they are usually set up for the whole festive season, spanning from November through to January, giving you so much opportunity to go ice skating.
