Christmas Ice Skating in Tunbridge Wells

Experience the magic of ice skating outdoors in Tunbridge Wells this Christmas.   Set within the beautiful splendour of the popular and historic park, Calverley Grounds, the real 35 x 20 metre  ice rink is a perfect Christmas outing for friends and family.

Dedicated parent and toddler session will take place every morning at 9.45am – 10.15am and 10.15am – 10.45am (excludes Christmas Day – Rink Closed) and midweek Monday – Friday at 2pm (from Mon 21 November – Friday 16 December).  On Boxing Day & New Year’s Day there will only be one session at 10.15am.

The thirty minute sessions are for toddlers aged  2 - 4 years old, they are great fun and provide a safe environment for little ones to enjoy ice skating.  These sessions cost from £7.00 – this allows one adult to skate with each toddler.  Seal skating aids are available to hire for children.

For main skating sessions, the rink will be open from 11am until 9pm – last skating session 8pm. Please note the last skating session will be 5pm on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Years Eve and New Year’s Day. The rink is closed on Christmas Day.  Booking for peak times is essential – Thursday and Friday evenings, all day Saturday and Sunday and Christmas week.  Adult tickets cost from £10.50 and children’s tickets (aged 4 years and above) from £7.00, family tickets and concessions are available.  Ticket price includes hire of skating boots and lasts for 45 minutes.

Tickets are on sale from 1 October and can be purchased in person at Assembly Hall Theatre Box Office, online at the website and by calling 01892 554645. The onsite ice rink Box Office opens on Friday 18 November.

Why not add to your ice skating fun and come and see Father Christmas in his cosy, warm log cabin set in the trees & snow!

Each personalised family visit will allow plenty of time to talk to Father Christmas before children choose an age appropriate gift and have their photograph taken with Father Christmas as a family memento of their visit. The mounted photograph, children’s gift and visit is included in the ticket price of £12.50 per child (all adults pay £2.00 only). 

To book your tickets in advance to see Father Christmas or for further information and reviews go to our website. We strongly advise booking in advance to avoid any disappointment for children expecting to see Father Christmas.
