Kids at the Royal Pavilion Ice RinkChildren and families are given a warm welcome at the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink. The smallest skate boot size available for children is 25 (age approx 3-4 years old), however dual blades (‘bob skates’) are available for younger skaters. Parents must judge whether their children can skate safely. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or over) to the venue. Children under 8 must have an adult (aged 18 or over) with them on the ice.
The largest skate boot is shoe size UK15 / European 49. A child must be under 12 yrs to qualify for the child ticket price. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or over) to the venue, and children under 8 must have an adult with them on the ice.
The ice rink is obliged to limit the number of penguin skate aids on the ice and they are only available to small children 1.2m tall or less. Skate aids are available on a first come, first served basis so customers are advised to arrive early if they require a skate aid.
Baby changing facilities are available on-site, and our children's menu in our rinkside restaurant offers a fantastic range of tempting dishes for younger visitors.
Families with pre-school children are encouraged to skate in the second session of the day (11.15am – 12.15pm) during the week, when the rink is quieter and those learning to skate have more freedom on the ice.
