Last weekend, Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink opened its doors for another year of traditional family fun on the ice.
Thousands of locals from the area, as well as many first-time visitors, are expected to make their return to the much loved festive family activity during the 7 week season.
It marks the fourth season that Arena has partnered with Historic Royal Palaces, providing a fully managed rink and food and beverage services provided by local caterer, Miss Polly Cafe.
Last weekend, visitors were among the first to tuck into some rich dishes by Miss Polly Cafe at the Ice Rink Café & Bar, with the likes of hearty pies and steaming cups of hot chocolate to warm up.
For those with something special to celebrate, two new party packages have also been launched for this year: 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.
Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink is open to the public every day, except Christmas Day, until 5 January 2020. The 45-minute sessions run on the hour from 10am until 9pm on weekdays and from 9am on weekends.
