Enjoy the magic of Riverhill this Christmas at their brand new skating rink, with daily sessions from Friday 1st December until Sunday 7th January! Find out more about skating under the stars and having Breakfast or Afternoon Tea with Father Christmas too…
Run in partnership with Tonbridge Old Fire Station, the on-site Alpine Cafe will be serving warming drinks, light lunches and delicious cakes for all ages from 10am to 6pm daily too – visitors won’t need a ticket just to visit the cafe or be a spectator for the rink.
Located just outside Sevenoaks, around a 15-20 minute drive from Tunbridge Wells, enjoy skating with family and friends between 10am and 6pm as well as ‘Skating under the Stars’ sessions, where the Alpine Bar will also be open too.
If you have a pre-schooler, why not take them along to one of the toddler sessions taking place every morning at 10am and 11am until 20th December – under 4s can skate and an adult goes on the rink for free with them!
For the Father Christmas Breakfast and Afternoon Tea events which are taking place on Saturdays and Sunday from 2 to 23 December, visitors will be treated to a delicious meal before getting the chance to meet Father Christmas, who will be giving out gifts to all ‘good’ children.
At the time of writing this, tickets for breakfast and afternoon tea are more than 50% sold out, so if you are hoping to take your little ones along, the sooner you can book, the better! The Breakfast menu is £12 per person while Afternoon Tea is £15 per head.

The rink and Alpine Cafe are in a marquee which has a clear roof, making this a completely weather proof activity!
