Last weekend, on 16 November, the Tower of London Ice Rink and The North Pole Cambridge officially opened to the public for the festive season.
A headline feature as part of Cambridge’s winter events program, the North Pole Cambridge returns to the city for the fourth time.
As well as enjoying the traditional festive pastime of ice skating, visitors can warm up with some festive treats and winter warmers at the Alpine Bar and log cabin-style food stalls including German Bratwurst and cups of indulgent hot chocolate.
The Tower of London Ice Rink also opened its doors this weekend to excited visitors ready for their first turn out on the ice for winter, this season offers an even larger rink to enjoy more space to glide on the ice.
It marks the fourth season that Arena has partnered with Historic Royal Palaces, providing a fully managed rink and food and beverage services and this year.
Last weekend, visitors were among the first to experience the warming treats from the new Ice Rink Café & Bar provided by Miss Polly, enjoying the likes of hearty pies and fully loaded hot chocolates.
Two new party packages have also been launched for this year for those special occasions: Prosecco and Skate which includes a small bottle of bubbles with every skate session, and a VIP Party option which includes skating, food and drink, plus an exclusive party area.
