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 under 8 years old 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.

Penguin Club

Every Saturday the ice rink is open from 10am to 11am.

Children under eight years of age can skate for free when accompanied by a fee paying adult (adult price: £13).

Our loveable mascot, Mr Penguin plus Ice Marshals will be on hand to provide skating tips. Free arts and craft activities will also take place at the adjoining Bar & Kitchen from 11am-12.15pm.

Terms and conditions apply: Only 1 child under 8 may skate for free per paying adult. Tickets for any additional children will be charged at the standard rate of £8.50 per child.
