Ice Skating at North Pole, Cambridge

A couple of weeks ago, I headed to North Pole, Cambridge with Georgia from Mapped Out blog. Georgia had been sent some tickets, and kindly took me with her! We went on the first Saturday it was open, and selected the earliest slot possible which is 11am. If you're looking to go, I'd recommend getting there early so the ice rink isn't took busy! It's open until 8 January so there's still time to go.



It's worth noting that you need to bring a £2 coin with you if you want to use the lockers. As we were going alone, we made sure to bring one as we knew we'd want to store our things. We arrived about ten minutes before our session which was plenty of time to get our skates on before heading out on the ice.


Each session is 45 minutes long, and we found that was the perfect length of time. As much as I love ice skating, I forget that it is quite good exercise so 45 minutes is the ideal length of time to spend on the ice - especially in the English weather! I love being on the rink, we used to go ice skating quite a bit when we were younger as my mum's cousin's wife is an ice skating teacher so it always brings back lovely childhood memories.


Ice skating is the perfect festive activity and I much preferred ice skating in Cambridge, than somewhere busier in London. There were enough people on the ice for there to be a good festive atmosphere, but Georgia and I could skate around happily without too much fear of people skating into us.

Within the North Pole area on Parker's Piece, there are also some rides and food stalls as well which makes it the perfect place to visit with your family. There's a lot to do, and the whole area feels incredibly festive. Visiting made me very excited for Christmas!

Thank you Georgia for taking me along.

Have you been to the North Pole, Cambridge?
