Young visitors can journey through the secret door that leads to the Ice Gallery and Santa’s Grotto. Met by enthralling crystal clear polar animals and characters, these sculptures will thrill children and adults alike. Moving on through the magical forest, visitors will enter Santa’s Throne Room where children will be greeted by Santa and one of his Elves, who will be ready with a special gift.

A massive 25 tons of crystal clear carving ice will be used to create the Ice bar, Ice Gallery and carving displays. The rink holds approximately 7 tons of ice covering over 600 sq metres!

Ice Box, a team of highly experienced artists, who are also the team behind the London Ice Sculpting Festival, brings this incredible Ice experience the UK for the first time. During the not to be missed #IceFestival, there will be a series of exciting displays and events, with free live ice carving displays throughout weekends in November and December.

Visitors after something more relaxing, can enjoy a delicious hot chocolate or mulled wine served from a contemporary alpine café bar and terrace alongside the ice rink. Throughout Chavasse Park there will be plenty of activities to keep younger visitors entertained.

    I’ve been looking at the liverpool icefestival and would like to know if the four attractions require a separate ticket as I wouldn’t want to do the icerink and how long would your ticket allow you to stay in let’s say for example the ice bar and are you able to go to and from each different attraction.

  2. Jane Melia on said:

    Hi there, want to go and visit the Ice Bar, can you get tickets at the bar or are they only available on Ticketmaster? Thanx

    • Liverpool ONE on said:

      Hi Jane,
      Yes you can buy tickets from the main bar or the box office on site for access to the Ice Bar on the day, subject to availability.
      Best wishes,

    Hi, will be celebrating my 60th weekend 24 Nov and this sounds fab. Chavasse park is that in the centre of Liverpool and can you recommend any hotels in the area will be 13 in party altogether. Many thanks. Liz

    • Roz Lloyd on said:

      There are lots of great hotels for various budgets all with great access to Chavasse Park which is part of Liverpool ONE and Liverpool City Centre. Here is a website for hotels: if you select Liverpool City Centre the options will all be within easy reach. The nearest hotel to Chavasse Park is the Hilton, but also near by is the Hard Days Night Hotel and a Novotel. There are also serviced apartments available. I would suggest that you book your tickets for the #icefestival in advance on the website
      Hope you enjoy your weekend – let us know how you get on!

    • Hi there is a fantastic place to stay just by Liverpool One if you search for Posh Pads in Liverpool you also get a kitchen area, dining area and 2 rooms. My sister got a good deal but not sure what prices are like at the minute. I just thought it would be good as there are 13 of you. Have fun.

    Hi, I am looking into booking tickets for the ice bar for a start of a night out. I have heard of other Ic bars that give you coats and gloves to wear when you get there. I was wondering if this Ice Bar does the same or are we advised to dress in warm clothes?


  5. Adele Browne on said:

    Hi. Does it cost extra to buy direct from box office as ticket master charge 95p booking fee then £2 just to email the tickets?! So the price isn’t as it seems. Seems excessive for an email! Thanks

    • Liverpool ONE on said:

      There is no booking fee if you purchase from the Box Office on Chavasse Park. But please be aware that tickets bought on the day are subject to availability!

      The rink is generally open when it rains, but there is a chance it will be closed if the rain is heavy. Please call 0151 232 3100 to check before you turn up.

    Booking to come to the Santa grotto as a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children (5 and 2). I know you get one adult free, how much will the second be please and where do I buy that ticket??


  7. Jessica on said:

    Been to the ice rink twice now since opening. Was lucky enough to see the penguins and the reindeer on the opening day/night. Its amazing although as a student I’d only pay out for the skating because its just brilliant and its a proper amazing little real ice rink aswell.

  8. Natalie on said:

    Thinking of bringing my boys to visit Santa on sat, how long are you in the grotto for roughly as would like to book the ice slide too but don’t want the times to overlap?

  9. Hi

    I want to buy tickets as a gift. Am just wondering, as you have to enter a date when purchasing, does the date have to be strictly adhered to? Thanks.

    • Liverpool ONE on said:

      Hi James,
      We’re sorry to say that yes the dates and times do need to be adhered to as you are buying a ticket for a specific slot. We currently have no gift vouchers. But thanks for your feedback, we’ll make sure we consider gifts for next year.
      Best wishes,

  11. I visited the grotto this evening with my 4 year old niece and it was amazing. We were greeted by the elf then taken through to see father Xmas and then the magic really happened – he was amazing! The best father Christmas ever (Carl McFarlane) – my niece was mesmorised throughout and was made to feel very special by Santa. I was even transported back to when I was a child and started believing myself. Awesome! Highly recommended

  12. Hi ive just got tickets for the ice rink and was wondering where the box office is and if tou have to collect the tickets days befor hand or the same day uve booked for

    • Liverpool ONE on said:

      Hi Sammie,
      You can collect on the day but make sure you arrive with plenty of time before your skating session as there may be a long queue for the Box Office.
      Best wishes,

  13. Hello, I have bought two tickets for the ice rink this evening. The weather has taken a turn for the worse and its raining! If the ice rink is closed will I get a refund? And how heavy does the rain need to be in order for it to close?
