Christmas 2021

Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland

Join us this Christmas as the award-winning Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland returns to York Designer Outlet from 19 November 2021 to 9 January 2022.

Glide gracefully on the North of England’s largest outdoor ice rink, The Ice Factor and marvel at the 30ft high sparkling Christmas tree taking centre stage on the ice.  As dusk arrives, be enchanted by the illuminated trees, log cabins and reindeers as you skate under the stars!

Overlooking the ice rink, The Chalet makes the perfect spot to warm up after a skate on the ice. The cosy apres-skate cafe offers a selection of festive favourites including mulled wine and mince pies plus hot chocolate, hot dogs, toasties and an array of tempting sweet treats.

The magic doesn't stop there...relive the golden era of fairgrounds at the Vintage Funfair.  Jump on a motorbike for an exhilarating ride on the 1936 Speedway, race round the rare Brooklands Dodgems and go for a spin on the stunning 1930s Chair-o-Plane! And for the little ones, Hush Hush train and Muffin the Mule is guaranteed to make them smile!

Tickets are now on sale and booking is recommended for skating at The Ice Factor.
