This weekend everyone’s favourite enchanting Christmas Ice Festival returns for another year, as Liverpool’s iconic Pier Head is transformed into a winter wonderland.

This will be the third year for the festival at its iconic waterfront location, featuring Liverpool’s biggest ever ice slide and a huge covered outdoor rink giving skaters the chance to glide in style with a stunning backdrop of the world famous Three Graces. Suited for all ages and abilities, the rink has a canopy to keep everyone dry whatever the weather and there are plenty of penguin skate aids available to help young skaters stay steady on their blades.

Ice Skating: Student price: £11 and Adult price: £12. Ice slide: £6 for all.

For even faster thrills, the high-speed 30-metre ice run – back with three lanes – is set to be the city’s most exhilarating festive ride as racers hurtle down from six-metres above the festival site. The Ice Jet ride also makes a return following its Liverpool debut in 2017. The only one of its kind in the UK, it features a fantastic sound and light show, giving festival-goers the ride of their life.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the full family-friendly festival experience with funfair rides for children and adults, and pop-up food and drink stalls serving après skate specialities including sizzling traditional German bratwurst, hot roast rolls, crepes, mulled wine and hot chocolate.
