Ice Skating At Alexandra Gardens
A-Z Poster Distribution have started the massive poster campaign so look out for the posters and book now.
Windsor On Ice offers a great value day out for all the family, ice skating in the beautiful surroundings of Windsor Castle and The Windsor Coronation Fountain.
The main ice rink, sheltered in a well-lit and festive marquee, is accompanied by an outdoor skating track and many more exciting attractions; the venue offers a great atmosphere for Christmas parties and enthusiastic staff.
Now in its 4th year at Alexandra Gardens, the ice rink is open from Saturday 14th December until Saturday 5th January.
We aim to bring fun on the ice for young and old alike, where all levels of skater are welcome, experienced and inexperienced. This year our viewing area, festive food court and some attractions are also under cover, so non skaters can relax and stay warm while watching their family have fun on the ice rink, enjoy a fresh coffee or sample our festive food and drink.
Windsor’s main shopping centre is less than five minutes walk from the ice rink, with many bars and restaurants close by. Why not take in a great river walk, or visit the world famous Windsor Castle too? And don’t forget to check out ourspecial offers for fantastic savings!
