Bedford will be going on ice later this month as a town centre hotel invites you to get your skates on.

The Swan Hotel is making the most of its riverside location - the new Terrace Bar was the hit of the summer season, especially with the hundreds of thousands who visited the River Festival.

The terrace area will now be turned into a real ice rink for adults and children to enjoy from Friday, November 21 through to January.

The sparkling ice attraction is expected to attract people from far and wide to visit the historical hotel.

Sales and marketing manager Natasha Trudgill said: “Seasonal ice rinks are becoming increasingly popular but this is the first in Bedford town centre and of course is attached to all the other great hospitality facilities here at the hotel.

“To be able to skate outdoors, alongside Bedford’s beautiful river, will be the best festive attraction the town could wish for.”

Bookings can be made on-line now and you can sign up to keep up to date with any special offers - as well as party bookings there are meal packages combined with a skate session.

The Christmas season at the Bedford Swan offers a wide range of options for family or office events. From Festive Afternoon Tea at £15.95 per person, to Christmas lunches and party nights from £25 per person and New Year Celebrations. Attending any of these regular Christmas offers can be combined with the ice-rink attraction - provided you book early enough.

“The ice rink adds such a fun element to the season, we look forward to welcoming everyone.”
