Central Park, NYC or Somerset House, London – No, it’s the Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton that we’re recommending this year. The South of Englands new Christmas jewel has got to be the latest ice rink which opened in Brighton last week – a fabulous idea for a christmas party gathering with friends and long over due I say!

The stunning Brighton Ice Rink

It has got everything; a 700 square metre ice rink, a crèche, a pop up ringside candle lit restaurant with delicious food, a beginner’s area with the cutest ‘penguin’ skate aids designed especially for the tiny tots and the icing on the cake are the lovely toilets which makes a refreshing change I think.

I had a fantastic time here yesterday and will definitely be going back – it’s affordable and has the most lovely backdrop (check out Robert Leightons fabulous picture here). If you have a group that is interested in going let us know and we will see what we can do for you.
