TICKETS NOW ON SALE
The award-winning Winter Wonderland, York’s favourite festive event, returns to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York, from 16th November to 5th January, celebrating its 15th year in the city and its 10th at the centre.
The Ice Factor, the North of England’s largest outdoor ice rink at 975 sq m, once again has a 30ft high sparkling Christmas tree as its centrepiece. Surrounded by illuminated trees, log cabins, the rinkside cafe and a viewing platform, this magical setting makes for the perfect festive experience for all ages.
Christmas would not be the same without a visit to SANTA and his elves. Follow the path through the snowy enchanted woodland to find his cosy log cabin and collect a special gift. Visits to Santa’s grotto are priced at £5 per child.
The vintage funfair features rides from the golden era of fairgrounds. Enjoy speed and thrills aboard the 1936 Speedway, the 1937 Brooklands Dodgems or the stunning 1930s Chair-o-Plane. Muffin the Mule and Hush Hush the train will delight children, as will the games stalls offering prizes galore.
Step inside the cosy alpine-themed, après-skate café overlooking the ice rink, where you can warm up after your session on the ice or simply sit back and watch the skaters glide past. Sip mulled wine, indulge in the best hot chocolate in town and feast on hot dogs, toasties and sweet treats.
