Gear up for Christmas with Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland at McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet

With less than 100 days until Christmas McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet announces the return of Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland this Christmas. Opening on Saturday 22 November the award-winning festive event will include an ice rink, Santa’s grotto, funfair and much more.

Celebrating its 10th birthday as York’s coolest Christmas experience, The Ice Factor rink will form the heart of Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland. The 900m2 outdoor ice rink, the largest in the north, has a spectacular 30ft Christmas tree at its centre and is surrounded by an illuminated forest, festive log cabins and a viewing platform.

Beside the picturesque ice rink, visitors can enjoy refreshments from the warmth of the heated PapaKitchen café and bar. The alpine-themed chalet offers post-skating and shopping relaxation with cosy furs, rustic wooden tables and a licensed bar serving hot and cold drinks amongst the warming scent of Glühwein. Enjoy delicious homemade treats from chilli con carne to gingerbread men.

As well as The Ice Factor, Santa will be handing out gifts to children from his stunning new grotto, featuring a theatrical Lapland scene. And beside the rink, wooden cabins depicting wintry fairytale scenes will enchant young and old. Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland also brings a funfair to York with thrilling rides, game stalls and prizes to win.
