Ice rink to open at Ramsgate Garden Centre

Ramsgate Garden Centre will be hosting a synthetic ice rink this weekend.

The centre, in Montefiore Avenue, is opening the rink on Saturday (November 18). Tickets are £6.95 per person or £25 per family (2 adults and 2 children). The cost of skate hire, or penguin aids is included in the ticket price.

Each skating session will last for 30 minutes. Skate aid penguins will be available every day for those who are less confident and novices on the rink.

The skating rink will be open every Saturday and Sunday until December 20 when the rink will be open Wednesday to Sunday. (Christmas and Boxing Day excluded).

Visitors to the Ramsgate centre can also explore Santa’s grotto or shop for items needed for the big day including real trees, accessories, decorations, and gifts for everyone.

Kerrie Walker, Centre Manager at Ramsgate Garden Centre, said: “There is something for everyone at Ramsgate Garden Centre, whether it’s skating, enjoying Christmas treats in the Gardener’s Retreat, or visiting Santa with the children.  We are a one-stop shop for all things Christmas and we can’t wait to celebrate with customers old and new in store!”
