Ice skating at Eden, winter 2013/14
This winter's ice skating season at Eden has now finished. Look out for the rink next winter!
General skating sessions
Our public skate sessions are 40 minutes long and begin on the hour.
Penguin skating aids
Our penguins (pictured right) are ideal for helping young skaters to gain confidence on the ice. They can be hired for any public skating session but pre-booking online is advisable. The penguins are 91.5cm tall and although there is no minimum height restriction, the user does need to be able to walk and reach the handle. The maximum height for use is 130cm. The charge covers the full 40-minute session and there are no refunds or part-refunds if the penguin is not used or is only used for part of the session. Bookings are non-refundable.
