The FOUR-time award-winning festive event is back and it’s bigger than ever!

Recently voted York’s Family Friendly Experience, Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland will be welcoming new additions to this year’s festivities in the form of an alpine skate hire chalet with rinkside views and a stunning new Polar Express themed Grotto for Santa.
With vintage funfair rides dating from as early as 1933, Santa welcoming visitors in his enchanting log cabin, live weekend entertainment and of course Christmas shopping at York Designer Outlet with designer brands for up to 60% less, Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland really does have something for everyone.
SKATE, PLAY, SHOP, DINE AT YORKSHIRE’S WINTER WONDERLAND!
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.
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.
