Skate Southampton On Esplanade

Book Now

SKATE is back on the Esplanade!

From 10th November to 6th January, the 900sq metre ice-rink (yes that’s even bigger than last year!) will be open daily throughout the festive period, except on Christmas Day.

Skate against a stunning backdrop of Christmas trees, fairy lights and the historic City Walls of Southampton, and then pop into Mogul’s cosy log cabin for a deliciously warming post-skate drink. Make it a date, a fun family day out or a trip with friends – ice skating at Westquay is a brilliant seasonal treat for all ages.

Enjoy a bigger, smoother rink with the comfiest skates yet and hire helpful skate aids too (perfect for the little ones).

There will be weekly events at the rink, so follow our Facebook page for the latest news, offers and exciting festive giveaways.

Get your skates on and book now to avoid missing out*.

*Bookings can be made at the rink or online. Each ticket includes skate hire and a one-hour session on the ice.
