Ice Rink powered by wind and solar energy

The south east’s most beautiful Christmas attraction, Brighton’s Royal Pavilion Ice Rink, returns for its 10th year, powered exclusively by wind and solar energy.

Set right in front of Brighton’s iconic royal pleasure palace, the huge 880 square metre rink and separate 130 square metre beginners’ rink are lit magically at night and for many of their visitors, herald the arrival of Christmas.

“We’re passionate about skaters being able to bring in the festive season with us without it costing the environment. That’s why this year we have gone the extra mile to ensure that we minimise our impact, using clean energy to power our rink, supporting Sussex Wildlife Trust to plant thousands of trees, and delivering the highest possible performance in terms of energy efficiency and minimising carbon emissions,” said Shella Parkin, MD of Laine Ltd, creator of the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink.
