The three-time award-winning festive event returns to York Designer Outlet

from 19 November 2016 to 2 January 2017

Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland is home to the north of England’s largest and best-loved outdoor ice rink – The Ice Factor – with its magical setting, giant Christmas tree and rinkside Alpine-themed café.


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.


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.
