We take accessibility very seriously as it’s important to us that people from all walks of life can visit and enjoy our venue. That’s why we do our utmost to ensure that no individual or group is reasonably excluded from any of our activities, facilities or services that we offer. Throughout the calendar, we offer a range of ice skating opportunities for those with disabilities, and their families.

For those who would benefit from a calmer environment while on the ice, our skating session on Sunday morning (10.30am – 12.30pm) has quieter music and skaters are encouraged to skate slower.

Essential companions skate for free when accompanying their patron at sessions. You may be asked to show nationally recognised documents to confirm that a carer is required so please bring this with you for your skate.

If you have any questions for our Accessibility Team, please contact us on 


The ice can be accessed on skates, in a wheelchair or in a purpose built sledge (sledge must be booked in advance). Coaches can be booked at an additional charge to provide support. Structured lessons and one-on-one coaching are available separately, or ice can be hired on a private basis for groups. Email our team on to enquire.
