Ice rink

Experience the magic of ice skating outdoors in the heart of Birmingham, right next to the big wheel. Feel like you’re in a scene from a Hollywood film on 600 sq metres of real ice. There isn’t a better way to celebrate Christmas!

The ice rink comes with a roof, so the unpredictable weather won't stop you from skating.
