The Eyes of the World are on us
With Braehead hosting the 2016 European Curling Championships this year we all need to get our skates on and practise! (Excuse the pun!) Scotland is bound to be a focus for the world’s skating aficionados over the next year – if you can’t skate, why not start now? Ice hockey fans may already know that Elite League club, the Edinburgh Capitals Ice Hockey Club are based on the site, as are Murrayfield Curling Club.
Skate hire is available with pairs ranging from toddlers size 4 to Adult size 14. Murrayfield Ice Rink is a great fun (although potentially exhausting) day out for all the family. Under 5s are even allowed to join in the Tea Time Sessions so you can truly spend the day as a family.
There is a cloakroom and lockers on site. Just as importantly there are free Learn to Skate sessions for complete beginners, so you won’t be left clinging to the side the whole time. And if it all gets too much, there’s always the café where you can relax and watch the others slip and slide!
Murrayfield Ice Rink does have free parking but you won’t need to worry about that staying at The Dunstane, just leave your car with us and head along on foot or on the bus.
As well as ice skating, and ice hockey, the Murrayfield Arena has been used for Ice Shows, Ice Speedway, Large Conferences, Basketball, Boxing, Wrestling, Festival Events, Music Concerts and Indoor Large Screen Broadcasts. The Arena’s capacity can increase up to 5,000 for such events.
