Kids at the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink

Children and families are given a warm welcome at the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink. The smallest skate boot size available for children is 25 (age approx 3-4 years old), however dual blades (‘bob skates’) are available for younger skaters. Parents must judge whether their children can skate safely.

The largest skate boot is shoe size UK15 / European 49. A child must be under 12 yrs to qualify for the child ticket price. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or over) to the venue, and children under 8 must have an adult with them on the ice.

A limited number of ‘penguin’ skate aids are available for children 1.2m tall or less only and are allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis

Baby changing facilities are available on-site, and our children's menu in our rinkside restaurant offers a fantastic range of tempting dishes for younger visitors.

Families with pre-school children are encouraged to skate in the first session of the day (10am - 11am) during the week, when the rink is quieter and those learning to skate have more freedom on the ice.
