South Leeds Garden Centre adds Ice Rink to its list of seasonal attractions

A South Leeds garden centre is launching a seasonal ice rink on 18th November.

Tingley Garden Centre has added an undercover boutique ice rink for up to 130 skaters to its seasonal activity programme for 2023.

“We’re very excited to introduce an Ice Rink to Tingley for fabulous family fun this festive season. Make memories over Christmas and the New Year with festive music and decorations, festoon lighting, plus a Skating Special menu at Blooms Kitchen, where you can warm up and unwind with a delicious selection of seasonal food and drink,” said Amy Walledge, Ice Rink Manager.

Tickets for the Ice Rink, which is open until 7th January for pre-back-to-school fun, start at £8.50 for a child’s off-peak ticket for a 50-minute session and skate hire. Visitors to Santa’s Grotto at Tingley Garden Centre can get 10% off the Ice Rink prices when they book both activities together. Groups of 10 or more automatically qualify for a 10% discount and the rink is available for exclusive hire by larger groups, schools, companies, and sports clubs. Booking is online at

Other festive activities at Tingley Garden Centre include Santa’s Grotto, Breakfast with Santa, Festive Afternoon Teas, seasonal menus, special offers and late-night opening.

Tingley Garden Centre is part of the Yorkshire Garden Centres family that also owns Tong Garden Centres and the former Stephen H Smith’s Garden Centres in Otley and Bingley.
