Watford’s Big Skate

Watford’s Big Skate

Watford’s Big Skate is open from 25th November 2017 until the 14th January 2018.


Watford’s first ever outdoor ice rink – with real ice! Is open from 26th November 2016 until 15th January 2017.

From 25 November to 14 January our outdoor ice rink (with real ice…brrr) is back to fill you with festive cheer.

We’ve made some pretty amazing improvements. This time the rink is bigger and will be adorned with a host of twinkling lights and trees. You can even sip on a hot drink and chow down on a sweet treat while watching the gliding skaters from the wooden ski lodge.

While you’re waiting to skate why not spend some time at the German Christmas market which will be taking over the town centre.
