Father Christmas at Tunbridge Wells Ice-rink 2019


For the 10th successive year, the open air Ice-rink is returning to Royal Tunbridge Wells. It will be open seven days a week from Friday 15 Nov 2019 – Sunday 6 Jan 2020 (closed Christmas Day). (Please note Father Christmas is only available on selected dates listed below)
So get ready to dig out your ear muffs and gloves, grab someone's hand, have some ice-skating fun and at the same time come and see our wonderful Father Christmas in his cosy, warm log cabin set in the trees & snow! (only visiting on certain dates, check booking calendar to avoid disappointment)

We pride ourselves on having one of the most authentic Father Christmas experiences in Kent which captures those priceless moments between a child and Father Christmas.

Father Christmas will welcome families in his cosy Log Cabin between Saturday 23 November 2019 and Tuesday 24th December 2019.

What’s included:

A warm welcome from our elves who magically let Father Christmas know all the children’s names

A cosy, dry, warm, beautiful Log Cabin waiting area where you can write a letter to Father Christmas and post in our special post box or hand to him personally

A 10 minute, personal, private visit with Father Christmas

Each child can choose an age appropriate, quality gift to take home

One professionally taken family photograph (1 per group or family) with Special Christmas frame upgrade available on collection

Extra photographs and merchandise are available to buy from our sales cabin

Keyrings and Fridge Magnets are also available along with digital image copies via e-mail


Children and families voted last year’s Father Christmas experience as one of the best ever in the Southeast, even better and more personilsed experience than Harrods in London some customers said!

We were also compared to the special, personilsed visit to Father Christmas at Lapland UK, that explains just how good an event we stage every year and it reminds us that the visit with Father Christmas is the most important part every Christmas.


We strongly advise booking in advance to avoid any disappointment.  However, we do try our best to accommodate families who turn up on the day, but this is not always possible.

All adults are £2.00 each with a full paying child over one year old.
One adult will pay the normal child price of £16.50 when accompanied by children under one and additional adults will be £2.00 each.
Our Log Cabin/s are disability friendly so plenty of access space for wheelchairs 
A small booking fee applies on check-out
