Have you twirled around on the ice rink, sipped a mulled wine or seen the city from the sky high swings yet?
The Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival has enjoyed a hugely successful winter so far, bringing icy fun back to the city for the second year running. With more rides, bigger and better thrills and an extended ice rink, the thrilling fairground, market and bars are open throughout the Christmas break until 7th January 2018, perfect for treating the kids.
Whether you’re out with your mates, the kids or your better half, there’s something for you to enjoy at the Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival. Wrap up in a silver blanket and take shots in the Ice Bar, get warmed through with a mulled wine, tuck into festive fries and frankfurters or fill your boots with Pic N’ Mix or don your skates, grab a penguin and glide on the canopied ice rink like Torvil & Dean.
