The historic centre of York is the backdrop for this seasonal skating extravaganza.
Skaters glide around an illuminated oak tree, with the facades of 13th-century Clifford' s Tower, the Law Courts and the Castle Museum forming the backdrop. York's biggest Christmas tree makes the event all the more atmospheric, and the rink is garlanded with pretty fairy lights.
The heated rink-side Ice Bar and Café is good for spectating, and offers a range of warming refreshments. It has a fully licensed bar, so it's a good spot for a Christmas drink or celebration.
