Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland will be returning on Friday 17 November! Gather your friends and family and plan that festive fun day out with us.

A magical day out awaits...
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.
