News - 20 September 2017


Tickets go on sale this week [Wednesday 20 September] for the South East’s most beautiful ice rink, The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink, opening for its eighth year from November 4 2017 to January 14 2018.

The ice skating tickets go on sale just two weeks after ITV announced that its hit show, ‘Dancing on Ice’, is returning to our screens in early 2018 for the first time since 2014 - inspiring visitors to the rink to channel their inner Torvill and Dean.

“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to our enchanting rink this year and hope that everyone will take advantage of this unique seasonal opportunity to enjoy the ice and to see Brighton at its twinkling best,” said Shella Parkin, MD of Laine Ltd, creator of the Royal Pavilion Ice

“We’re passionate about providing the best possible Christmas experience for visitors – from our ice quality and maintenance created by cutting edge rink technology and resurfacing, to comfy boots, separate beginners area, beautiful rinkside restaurant and staff who really love what they do. We’re very blessed with our location so the rink is always a beautiful place to visit, but my favourite time to skate with my kids is after school during the week, when the rink’s slightly quieter and they can stretch their legs a bit. And we can’t wait to try out the new stone-baked kids pizza after a skate too!”

The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink is located within Brighton’s bustling North Laine district, perfect for Christmas shopping, and beautifully lit at night for a truly magical Christmas skate right in front of the former royal pleasure palace. The 880-square metre main rink offers plenty of space for more confident skaters and the unusual, separate 130-square metre beginners’ rink with penguin skate aids provides a safe area for younger skaters to build their confidence.

For those looking to just sit back and soak up the festive atmosphere, there’s no charge for spectating from the cozy rink-side Bar & Kitchen or on its 40-metre terrace next to the ice. With plenty of space for larger gatherings, the 130 seater restaurant offers sumptuous snacks, hearty meals, including stone baked pizzas - new this year, a fantastic after school menu for kids and a great bar selection including local ale and a new range of craft beers, 14 different gins, and mulled wine or cider.

Conveniently situated just 50 minutes from Victoria by train, all of Brighton’s gorgeous independent shops are on its doorstep so visitors can get a little Christmas shopping in too.

Tickets cost from £10 for full price tickets (aged 12 and over), £7 for juniors (under 12) and the one-hour skate times run from 10am to 9.15pm daily. Club Rinkidinks (daily, second session of the day, 11.15am to 12.15pm excluding Dec 21st 2017 – Jan 1st 2018) offers children under five the chance to skate for free when accompanied on the ice by an adult paying full price. There are also great new multiticket offers for those who want to skate regularly (check website for details) and concessions for students. The box office is open from 9.30am to 9.45am, but it is advisable to book tickets in advance.
