This is the first time the seasonal attraction has returned to Portsmouth city center since 2019, having been canceled in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.

Last year Portsmouth Ice Skating tweeted: “Sad times. Portsmouth on Ice is officially on ice for a year.

“We’ll be back with some bells in 2021 so you can #GetYourSkatesOn. In the meantime, stay safe. Check our social networks for updates. ‘

Guildhall Square Ice Rink

In 2019, sessions cost £ 10.50 for adults and £ 9 for children, with family, group and school rates also available.

Hot drinks and seasonal snacks were also available for purchase.

Sessions dedicated to people with special educational needs and disabilities were also held during weekdays, with wheelchair access for all sessions.

The rink had an awning in 2019 after the opening in 2018 was slightly delayed due to warm weather.
