Sports, leisure & the Arts Family Friendly Cathedral Gardens

Santa and two children

Cathedral Gardens is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends this Christmas.

Strap on your skates and enjoy an afternoon on the ice - you don’t need to be a super skater, the penguins are back for young children and people who need a helping hand.

After a spin on the ice, take a ride on one of the traditional fairground attractions. You’ll find rides for all ages from a Victorian carousel, helter-skelter, Ferris wheel to a Victorian swing and smaller rides for toddlers.

After all that fun, rest your feet at the Windmill bar with it’s mulled wine and beers, or enjoy a mouthwatering Dutch cookie or waffle at the pancake house.
