Ice Rink Now Open At Brighton's Former Royal Pleasure Palace

Brighton is now the host to the the UK's first ever 'green rink', using a green energy tariff to freeze the ice and power up the attraction.


The rink, at the Royal Pavilion Gardens, is also set to announce a series of events and special visitors.

Jamie Oliver recently announced his involvement, saying:

“I’m really excited to be teaming up with Brighton’s Royal Pavilion Ice Rink to add some festive flavour! Fabulous Feasts will be serving up a whole range of gorgeous festive drinks and dishes made from great-quality British produce.

“With the incredible Royal Pavilion as the venue, it’s going to be a beautiful place to celebrate Christmas and get together with friends and family.

“Make sure you come and see us and get involved in all the festivities.”



With the former Royal pleasure palace as backdrop, the 800 square metre rink has space for 250 skaters per session.

The rink includes a beginners area and skates from ‘just walking’ to adult sizes, extra penguin stabilisers for kids and an extended hour of off-peak on weekdays until 5pm offering seasonal fun and a unique and special Christmas experience.

Jamie Oliver added:

“With the incredible Royal Pavilion as the venue, it’s going to be a beautiful place to celebrate Christmas and get together with friends and family. Make sure you come and see us and get involved in all the festivities.”

Former British figure skater Kirstie Newbrook, has signed up as an ice marshall at the rink for the winter season.

Royal Pavilion Ice Rink tickets cost from £10 for adults and £7 for children under 12 and the one-hour skate times run from 10am to 10.15pm daily. Buy your tickets now from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/royal-pavilion-ice-rink or call 0844 8472352 or for group bookings of ten or more call 0844 8471512.
