George Street is the new home to Edinburgh’s Christmas spectacular alpine ice rink, nestled between Castle Street and Charlotte Square. This year you can skate up to one of our bars and warm up with a mulled wine or hot chocolate and a selection of food while you are on the ice in our dedicated on-ice seating areas.
For those not so graceful on their feet, you can enjoy some festive treats from our bar and food stalls while viewing from the platform.
George Street is fully accessible from the pavement level. An accessible toilet is provided by Edinburgh City Council at the west end of George St opposite Charlotte Square - please contact a member of Edinburgh’s Christmas staff for the key.
We have tried to make the walkways of Edinburgh’s Christmas as even as possible with ramps to stalls where we can, however, please note that due to the temporary nature of the site, ramps may occasionally be steeper than 1:12.
Wheelchairs are welcome on the Ice Rink.
There is no ride-wide policy for the suitability of the rides for those with disabilities. This is due to variant conditions – e.g. unfavourable weather, the type of ride – and the nature of the disability, as some rides will require more support than others. The individual ride operator on the day will determine whether the ride is suitable, for safety reasons, and how they will grant admission.
Pay and display parking for George St is available on Frederick Street, George Street, Hanover Street and Charlotte Square. This is free for Blue Badge holders with no time limit. Full details and locations of street Blue Badge parking bays can be found on the City of Edinburgh Council website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk.
