Icescape Pull up at the Port of Dover!


Our rink at the Port of Dover is in full swing! Located at the Cruise Terminal 1 building, formerly the Dover Marine Station at Western Docks, this is the first Christmas event ever at this location, and we are delighted to be the contracted supplier of the rink there!

At 30m long, the rink is a perfect size for people to skate around with their friends and family, and you may be able to spot and reserve a few of our famous ‘Bobby the Seal’ skating aids when you get there!

A Rustic, Cosy Christmas

The perimeter of our ice rink is sealed off with a wooden barrier, which by combining with the tasteful decoration around the terminal, Port of Dover have created a cosy atmosphere. You’ll also notice in the images in the gallery that the Christmas lights have been placed all the way around the rink, illuminating the night and making it feel even more festive!

We have some fantastic pictures showing off the rink. We think you’ll agree that the place is looking very magical, and a great location to go skating on the run up to the big day! Christmas day that is … not a wedding day!

Markets, Music, and more …

There’s an English themed Christmas Market open on Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. It will be open throughout the week just before Christmas, where you can enjoy music and decorations with unique gifts and Christmas themed family activities and workshops. so head on down and enjoy the festivities, as there’s plenty to do!

Our ice rink at The Port of Dover opened on Monday 7th of November, and will run all the way through until Monday 2nd January 2017, meaning there’s still plenty of time to get your skates on!

Penguin’s playground

This year they even have Penguin Club, a parent and child ice skating session which offers the perfect introduction to ice skating!covered-ice-rink1

Icescape insight – Bath on Ice!

Bath on Ice Drone View

The Coolest Ice Rink in Bath…

Most would agree that Royal Victoria Park is one of the most beautiful venues in Bath, and we are proud to say that’s where our next featured ice rink is currently located!

The rink looks fantastic, with a picturesque view of the iconic Bath stone buildings against the fresh winter sky. As you can see from our images in the gallery below, we took some spectacular shots thanks to the Danco drone!

The rink is over 400 sqm in size, and as you can see by the pictures, that’s more than enough space to slide round in style. We provided some additional penguin skate aids for our client to supplement their own stock too, always there to lend a helping … wing!

Icescape Gets the Job Done!

The installation took a couple of weeks in total, due to the build site being so tight and with very restricted access, everything had to be lifted in over a fence with a rotating telehandler!

When you walk through the front entrance, underneath the well lit Chinese hats (all structures provided by Danco of course!), you are welcomed in to a cosy, warm atmosphere. Comfy furniture, with wooden log decals placed along the walls to imitate a real alpine ski lodge makes the entire place really look the part. Don’t believe us? Head down there yourself!

Once you literally ‘get your skates on’, the sessions run in 45 minute periods, giving everyone plenty of time to throw some shapes on the ice. Safety precautions are recommended.

Re-fuel in style

After that, you can refuel in their fullylicensed bar which sells anything from lemonade to champagne! They also have freshly made Pizza cooked in a wood fire oven, and snacks for you to enjoy before and/or after you skate.

Bath on Ice is open from the 18th Novemboi-4ber 2016 until the 3rd January 2017 (Every day except Christmas Day), so head on down!
