Ice Skating in Dorset — get your skates on!

15 November 2017

Christmas is nearly here and there’s a fun way to get you in the festive spirit — ice skating.

Nothing beats getting wrapped up, getting your skates on, and heading out to glide (or stumble) across the ice, then treating yourself to a delicious hot chocolate afterwards. Whether you’re a cling-to-the-side kind of skater or have a Torville and Dean style, ice skating is a fab activity for all and a great way to get together with friends and family to have some fun.
