Spectrum Ice - The Coolest Place to have Fun!

Guildford Spectrum houses an Olympic sized ice rink which is used by thousands of people each week. Whether you are an experienced ice dancer or a wannabe Flames player, Spectrum Ice is available all year round for you!  

Specialist Sessions

Spectrum offers a variety of sessions and activites for all ages and abilities. Some of these are detailed below:  

Ice Xtreme & 2Xtreme

The ultimate disco experience, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  Click here for more information.

Fun Penguins 

"Penguins" are available to hire on the day on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be advised we have a limited number available and they are hired in 15 minute sessions.  At peak times the penguins are very popular with our younger visitors and as we currently only have 15 penguins they may not always be available during your visit.  Please click here for further details.  


We recommend that children wear a helmet whilst on the ice. Adults can also wear helmets but they are available on a first come, first served basis. We don't have enough for every skater. Therefore if you have a cycle helmet with a chin strap bring that with you.

Skate Hire

Please note that our ice skates available from Skate Hire range from a child size 6 to an adult size 14. 

Simply Skate
