Visitors of Hampton Court Palace will be treated to an early Christmas present this year, as their annual ice rink opens to the public on November 26th.

PWR Events, the company that installs the ice rink, has been busy with the preparations for opening day, including building the festive Ice Rink Café and constructing the ice rink.

It will be the company’s ninth year installing the winter wonderland and they invite everyone of all ages and skills to enjoy hourly skates throughout Christmas and the new year.

Last year 80,000 spectators and ice skaters visited the winter spectacular and the company expect numbers to exceed last year’s as the event has been getting more and more popular as a winter outing every year.

Claire Edmonson, a student, said: “I’ve never been to Hampton Court to ice skate, but it sounds lovely and festive.

“I’d love to go with my family and revisit my skating years again.”

Anna Hope, PWR Events communications officer, said: “We would recommend booking your tickets as early as possible to ensure you don’t miss out on the skating fun this winter.

“Hampton Court Ice Rink is a truly spectacular backdrop for a day out, for people of all ages.”
