York’s favourite festive event, Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland, offers a magical winter experience for all ages, with an outdoor ice rink, vintage funfair, Santa's Grotto and The Chalet alpine cafe.
Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland is free to enter, with separate tickets required for skating at The Ice Factor and for Santa's Grotto. Tokens for the funfair rides can be purchased on site.
The Ice Factor is the North of England’s largest outdoor ice rink, with 975 sq m of real ice and a 30ft high sparkling Christmas tree as its centrepiece. Surrounded by illuminated trees, log cabins, the rinkside cafe and a viewing platform, this magical setting makes for the perfect festive experience for all ages.
Overlooking the ice rink is The Chalet, a cosy alpine-themed, après-skate café and an ideal spot to warm up after a session on the ice or to watch the skaters glide past. Mulled wine, the best hot chocolate in town, hot dogs, toasties and sweet treats will be available to purchase, and private parties can also be arranged.
The Vintage Funfair makes a welcome return with its unique collection of rides from the golden era of fairgrounds, offering excitement for all ages.
Enjoy a thrilling ride on an original 1930’s Speedway or traditional Dodgems, while the Hush Hush Train ride will delight the little ones. Test your skills at the game stalls and win a prize every time!
Christmas wouldn't be the same without a visit to Santa and his elves. Follow the path through the snowy enchanted woodland to find his cosy log cabin and collect a special gift.
Visits to Santa’s Ggrotto are priced at £5 per child with a £1 family booking fee.
A reservation is required.
