⛸️ Ice Skating at Guildford Spectrum

Wondering what sports facilities are available at Guildford? Check out The Spectrum! The leisure complex is owned by Guildford Borough Council, located on the outskirts of Guildford. It includes an Olympic-sized indoor ice rink, bowling lanes, gyms and various swimming pools.

So, as the title suggests, we will be looking at their ice skating facilities today. They provide public ‘Skate for All’ sessions, as well as child, adult and hockey ‘Learn to Skate’ lessons. There are also Ice Discos during the weekends and occasional themed nights.

The Ice Rink can be busy during weekends and holidays, so make sure you check the availabilities!

Concession tickets are only £5.15 and adults are £8.10. Booking is required on their website where you can check the availabilities of each session. Simply collect your tickets at the front desk upon arrival and you’re good to go!

Skate hires are £3.00 per pair.
You can pay for a locker to store any bags and personal belongings.

Personally, it has been a long time since I went ice skating. It took me some time to get used to, but I had a great time overall. And who says falling over isn’t fun! I would definitely recommend this, especially coming from Hong Kong where indoor ice skating is so common!

Phones are unfortunately not allowed on the ice, but a photographer could take photos for you and your friends! Have a look at them after your session and decide whether you want to purchase them!

It is always a good idea to sit down for a coffee if you have planned a half-day trip there or simply want to sit down after your 90-minute skating session. There is a variety of beverages and restaurants inside The Spectrum, as shown below.

The easiest way to travel there will be by car, which is about a 10-15 minute drive from Stag Hill campus. You can also take Bus route 1 or 6 (around 35-40 minutes), or walk for 35 minutes (according to Google Maps) if you prefer🤔
