Christmas is a very special time of year in the UK, we can all benefit from a bit of down time with the family over a relatively long period of time. However if you have found that you have over indulged a bit this Christmas how about enjoying a spot of ice skating - this sport is fun for young and old and is the perfect way to dust yourself down after Christmas.
So how about a trip to the North Pole ice rink in Parkers Piece, Parkside, Cambridge, CB2 1AA as it runs until the 8th January except for Christmas Day. They say that visitors can glide in style around the glistening open-air ice rink, enjoying the a fun array of traditional and exhilarating rides and stalls.
The cosy Alpine Bar provides shelter for those who are too young or for those spectators who just don’t fancy skating, and a space to enjoy a warming drink of hot chocolate topped with cream or the more traditional mulled wine and a choice of warming snacks.
