We were invited to The Ice Rink at Selfridges in Manchester's Trafford Centre (in association with UGG) to enjoy a festive ice skating session on Sunday morning. We arrived at the undercover venue, which was beautifully bedecked in Christmas trees, baubles and decorations. We collected our ice skates and borrowed a seal skate aid for Freddy to use, before taking to the ice.
The girls took to it like naturals and Freddy did superbly well with his little skates that fitted over his shoes. They gave him more stability than the bladed boots and are a good choice for little ones.
During the session, we met two very special visitors Peppa Pig and Father Christmas! Freddy was delighted to see them both. After the session was over we were treated to Krispy Kreme doughnuts and a hot drink. What a lovely way to start the day!
The ice rink is open until the beginning of January and is located at the main fountain entrance to Selfridges Trafford off Barton Dock Road, it can also be accessed through men's shoes on the Lower Level.
