The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink is an outdoor event and skating continues whatever the weather so please dress appropriately - if it's raining, you will get wet! Parents of young children may wish to bring a change of clothes during wet weather. Long coats, skirts and scarves should not be worn for visitor's own safety. Please bear in mind, tickets are strictly non-transferrable and non-refundable. Once a ticket has been sold, the quota for that session is reduced so refunds will not be payable if visitors decide to cut short their session.
Strictly no bags are permitted on the ice, and if you can leave your bags at home, please do so. Bags should not be left unattended at any time - bags left unattended will be removed from the building for the safety of all our staff and customers. Lockers are available on-site at a cost of £1 (non-refundable).
