Surrounded by log cabins, the ice rink will be the most festive spot in the whole of Yorkshire this Christmas, and you won’t want to miss it. York’s favourite festive experience will open on the 19th November through to Sunday 9th January 2022.

The Ice Factor rink is a great experience for all ages to get stuck into the merry and magical fun time. Whether you’re zipping around on the ice or shakily making your way around the edge, it’s one of the most fun ways to spend the winter period with friends and family. They’ve even got penguin skate mates to help those who aren’t quite skilled enough around the rink.

The Chalet overlooks the ice rink, and is a cosy alpine themed cafe that serves you the best chocolate in town as well as yummy hot dogs, Mulled wine and sweet treats to be enjoyed once you’ve worked up an appetite on the ice. Enjoy your treats whilst watching the skaters zoom by in the warmth of the chalet with its twinkling lights.

Once you’ve finished having fun on the ice, you can also enjoy the Vintage Funfair that has an array of classic rides from the golden age of fairground rides. From the Dodgems to the Hush Hush Train ride and the old-fashioned game stalls there is something for everyone.
