Get your skates on… because Cambridge Ice Arena is now open!
The ice rink, just off Newmarket Road, has been number one on Cambridge’s most-wanted list for the next big leisure facility ever since tenpin bowling opened at Clifton Way.
Up to 250 people can attend the same session, and as well as paying for individual time slots, short-term passes are available, too. In addition to public skating, there are ice hockey, curling and figure skating sessions, plus learn to skate and birthday parties.
The cafe is the perfect place to refresh, plus catch up with the news using free Wi-Fi. As a not-for-profit social enterprise, the cafe is committed to locally sourced, ethically produced treats. Anyone aged three and up can skate, and for younger children who would like to hold on to a ‘polar bear’ while getting the hang of the ice, they need to be under 1.2m height.
