Award-winning Festive Fun at York Designer Outlet

The award-winning Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland, everyone’s favourite festive event IS BACK!

Home to the North of England’s largest outdoor ice rink, The Ice Factor, with a 30ft high sparkling Christmas tree as its centrepiece, this magical setting is the perfect family fun day out.

PapaKitchen, the cosy alpine-themed, après-skate café, with windows the entire length of the ice rink, is the ideal place to warm up after a session on the ice or simply sit back and watch the skaters glide past.

The popular vintage funfair returns with rides dating from the golden era of fairgrounds. Plus there are games stalls offering prizes galore!

In addition, visitors can enjoy Christmas shopping at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York where designer brands can be purchased for up to 60% less, and with FREE parking, Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland is the place to be this Christmas.  




The Ice Factor – the north of England’s largest outdoor ice rink – celebrates its 10th birthday this year and with its giant Christmas tree forms the heart of Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland, surrounded by an illuminated forest, picturesque log cabins and a viewing platform. New this year is a nursery rink where young skaters can take their first steps on the ice before venturing onto the main rink.


There’s excitement for everyone at the funfair, with brand new rides and games stalls offering prizes galore! Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a visit to Santa and this year he has a stunning new grotto, with a theatrical wintry setting and a special gift for every child. Beside the rink, a street of wooden cabins depicting wintry fairytale scenes will enchant young and old alike.


Christmas shopping is made easy here – with more than 120 stores inside York Designer Outlet offering up to 60% discount, you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift.


PapaKitchen offers rinkside refreshment in an alpine-themed chalet, complete with cosy furs and rustic wooden tables and benches. There’s delicious homemade treats – from chilli con carne to spiced apple cake – and a licensed bar serving hot and cold drinks to get you ready for skating. With all your favourite restaurants inside York Designer Outlet too, there is something for every taste bud.
