It will probably not surprise you to find out that there aren’t many ice skating rinks in Surrey – and not that many more over the festive season. That said, Christmas isn’t Christmas for me without an ice skating experience and it’s something I love to share with friends and family over the festive season.
Ice skating at Christmas
There are many fantastic ice rinks across the country – like WInter Wonderland in London – and we have been to many of the big, iconic ones over the year, but sometimes you just want to skate closer to home. So here are all the skating options across Surrey this year.
