Don’t miss Bath on ice this winter

Bath is gorgeous in any season, but an extra special atmosphere settles over it at Christmas, and it all starts on 22nd November when the ice rink arrives! The open air ice rink will be returning for the second year running and will be open every day throughout the season (except for Christmas Day).

If you’re planning a stay in accommodation in Bath the ice rink makes the perfect way to keep the family entertained, and each session is one hour long and skates are included in the price. Don’t worry if you have little ones who haven’t quite found their skating legs yet, the rink offers skating aids to help them get the hang of it.

The rink is illuminated at nightfall and it makes a beautiful sight with the Georgian city as a backdrop. Why not treat someone special to a turn on the ice and get them gift vouchers for a session? The vouchers are the perfect gift for Christmas, and they make a thoughtful touch if you’re planning a romantic break for two this festive season…you don’t even have to let on that it was out idea!
