The Christmas season is here! One of its many staples is ice skating - but where can you go ice skating in Birmingham?
In this article, we’ll be telling you where you can find an ice rink in Birmingham. We’ll include the address of each rink and their opening times, as well as how much it will cost (if prices are available).
Most of the ice rinks on this list will only be open for a limited time during winter. So, if you’re thinking about going, don’t wait too long!
If you’re planning on going ice skating, be sure to take care while doing so. While it may seem like a fun activity, it can cause injuries such as fractures and bone breaks if you suffer a heavy fall.
Birmingham has two ice rinks where you can go skating. There is also another in Solihull, which we will feature on this list.
