Friday 27th of November 2015
Christmas is upon us and what better way to get ready for the big day than with a session of outdoor ice skating. Glasgow on Ice returns from Friday 27th November until 31st December. Collect your Easirent hire car from our Glasgow Airport branch and make your way to a winter wonderland. Make sure you get wrapped up for the coolest time of the year though.
After your time ice skating beneath the Christmas lights, visit the Winter Cabin and Winter Lodge – where there is a spectacular view of the ice rink – for some hearty food and drink. Take it easy with a warm Christmas drink then later enjoy the view from the top of the big wheel.
At the Winter Lodge there will be Christmas storytelling, arts and crafts – children can make reindeer antlers, Christmas tree decorations and festive wreaths! – and face painting.
Getting to Glasgow on Ice couldn’t by easier. Just take the M8 into Glasgow city centre. The ice rink is at George Square where parking is available at a number of nearby car parks.
Unfortunately, children under 3 are not allowed to skate. Children aged 3 to 7 are only allowed to take part in the Reduced Capacity sessions and must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be booked in advance online and start at £9 for off peak up to £12 for peak sessions. Concessions and family tickets are available.
