We do! Since 2018 all of our token booths, ice skating and bar outlets have accepted card payments.

These can only be booked online when booking ice skating tickets. Penguins cost £5.00 per session. Please be aware, that users of the penguins have to be below 4ft. Staff at the ice rink will be able to measure the height at the ice rink to ensure that users are of a suitable height. This is a height limit set by the manufacturer of the penguins due to safety reasons.

Schools and groups can book by calling 02920 099087 or by emailing for more information. Please note we only accept payment by card or bacs and do not accept cheque payments.
