Caerphilly Castle is going to be transformed into a Christmas wonderland for two weeks only (November 23 – December 9) and supporters will be able to skate within the walls of Wales’s largest castle — for the first time ever – on a real ice rink, as well as indulge in treats from a pop-up pancake house.

Skate sessions can be pre-booked online for other dates at ticketsource.co.uk/caerphilly-castle-ice-rink, with tickets priced at £7 for adults, £5 for children under 14 and £22 for families (two adults and two children).

The ice rink will be open from 12pm-9pm on weekdays and from 10am-9pm on weekends, with standard skate hire included in the skate price. 

Ten penguin-shaped ‘ice walkers’ per session will be available at an extra cost for younger guests, with children aged 3-7 years permitted to skate when accompanied by an adult.
Festive refreshments will be available at the castle every day while the ice rink is operating and visits with Santa can be booked on the final weekend of Saturday, December 08 and Sunday, December 09.

The debut event has been organised by Cadw in partnership with Heart FM, Castle Court Shopping Centre, Caerphilly County Council, Dragon Signs, Caerphilly Town Council, Dragons Rugby and Ice Arena Wales / Cardiff Devils.

Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport, Lord Elis-Thomas, said: “We are delighted to announce plans to bring an ice-skating experience to Caerphilly Castle.

“Events such as this create new and exciting ways to help engage people with Wales’s rich heritage and we look forward to seeing people of all ages enjoying the surrounding of this magnificent castle in the lead up to Christmas.”
