Booking Online
WE ADVISE YOU BOOK ONLINE for Ice Skating at Whilton Locks Garden Village.
Booking online guarantees your skate at that time (as long as there are space available at the time of booking) You can ‘turn up’ and skate however, you may have to wait and anyone who has booked will be in front of you. Upon booking online, please print your booking confirmation order – or take a screen grab on your phone – and BRING IT WITH YOU. Failure to bring this printed confirmation/screen grab and/or order number may delay your skate.

Exceptional Weather Conditions
The ice rink is open come rain or shine. Please dress according to the weather conditions on the day. Climatic conditions may cause a layer of water on the ice surface, this will not affect your skating and does not make it unsafe to skate. Although you may get wet if you fall over!
