Royal Pavilion Ice Rink Is Now Open To The Public

The Royal Pavilion's first ever outdoor real Ice Rink opened has now opened its gates to the public until January 16th.
700 Square Metre Rink Is Open For Business

The Prince Regent, played by actor Greg Marshall, greeted the first skaters and Cllr Mary Mears, Leader of Brighton & Hove City Council, cut a ribbon to open the ice rink, saying:

"This is fantastic and we hope the people of Brighton really enjoy this very special, real ice rink."

The rink is beautifully set right next to the Royal Pavilion and also has a top quality heated cafe and restaurant created by Due South, with rinkside views and indoor and outdoor seating areas, which is open to the public, whether they skate or not. Organisers are urging people to come down and try it.



Shella Parkin of Laine Ltd, behind the attraction, said:

"We're really excited about bringing a real ice outdoor rink to Brighton for Christmas 2010.

"We hope to create a genuinely festive experience with a traditional feel, raising the bar for rinkside dining and going out of our way to make children and families feel welcome."


With the former Royal pleasure palace as backdrop, the 700 square metre rink has space for 200 skaters per session and the team behind the scheme, who are working with the Royal Pavilion and Brighton & Hove City Council, anticipate thousands of visitors.


Royal Pavilion Ice Rink tickets cost from £9.50-£11 for adults and from £6.50-£7.50 for children under 12 and the one-hour skate times run from 10am to 10.15pm daily, on sale online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or by calling 0844 847 2352.
