The Mayor and leader of Brent Council, Cllr Lesley Jones, and Muhammad Butt helped launch Wembley Park’s own ice skating rink, just beside Wembley Stadium.
The ice rink is open to everyone, from beginners to experts, and is already proving to be very popular holiday season choice with both local people and visitors from all over London and further afield.
For those who have never skated before and are nervous there are plenty of Ice Skate Marshalls on hand to assist novices and also to monitor safe skating among the more daring.
There are also colourful Skate Aid penguins available for young children.
Because of its popularity, on-line booking is recommended.
The ice rink is fully accessible for wheelchair users and it’s free carers to accompany a wheelchair user on the rink.
There are markets around the rink serving Mulled wine and street food including an Irish ‘pop up’, Butchies, selling Irish buttermilk fried chicken burgers.
The ice-skating continues until 3 January and a visit can be combined with a trip to the Stadium, the SSE (Wembley) Arena for concerts, or bargain and clearance hunting at London Designer Outlet.
Visitors can skate, shop, eat, watch a movie or stroll through the traditional Christmas market or the funfair. All are well signposted and close to Wembley Park Tube Station. There are three car parks – the multi-storey Red Car park is the nearest, located adjacent to the Outlet Centre.
Free Parking is available when spending at least £30 at London Designer Outlet.
