Not Durham, still a great place to go and skate
Cheap and cheerful, great ice rink. Fantastic for getting back into ice skating after a long time out.
Staff here are really friendly. There's a cafe (not super glamorous but the food is good) and a skate shop inside too. The rink can be busy sometimes and after a hockey session the ice can be a bit bumpy but it's still really fun.
Went with my son a few days ago while he went for a skate and I sat watching after paying £1 to spectate! The place looked like it hadn't changed one little bit in the 30 years since I was last there! Peeling paint, soggy carpet and squeaky seats etc but hey, what more do you need to go ice skating other than a big slab of ice and borrowed skates! You dont need modern interiors or superior facilities in order to have fun and you definitely have fun here! Both adults and kids thoroughly enjoying themselves and at only £7 per skater, it is more family budget friendly than a trip to McDonald's, which reminds me, there is a little cafe in the ice rink too. Will definitely be going back. Good family fun afternoon More...
Friendly staff, nice food and a a large ice rink
Doprovodila jsem vnuka na bruslení.Bruslařský ovál je velmi prostorný, vejde se zde hobně zájemců a dobře se mohou na ledě pohybovat. Kvalita ledu výborná. Prostředí pohodové. Bruslení bylo pěkné, hodina pohybu na ledě byla úžasná. More...
Amazing ice rink, great music and friendly team.
Great to watch ice hockey in the winter months
Amazing time the staff were friendly however during some days (tuesday - saturday) it is full of intense skaters (I am not removing stars because this is an issue with people not the place) so it mightn't be a good idea to go unless you are going during a quieter time or are a good skater
It's a great place to skate and have fun but the skates aren't the best but other than that they are amazing
My daughter loved it 10/10
Great as a one off visit. But the prices are not where they need to be. £6.50 for a 3 year old + £2 skate hire when an adult ticket is £7 + £2 skate hire. There was a family ticket for £23 but skate hire still £2 per person for 4. Not the cheapest but fun. More...
The only ice rink in the area, local ice hockey team are great fun for the family to watch. Come on get behind your local hockey team!
Its good for partys its was awsome people should go
A lot of potential. Would need some investments.
Attended a birthday party recently, cheap and cheerful.
Good ice rink
Hermine is really happy with the group ice polar ..⛸⛸. a great professionalism and a lot of pedagogy to childrenwe know the ice rink of France because we are French but we love the rink of withley baythank you
Visiting this place is like stepping back into the 1960s. It's better than Beamish for an authentic experience.
Very reasonably priced and adequate time sessions! Great day out for the kids. Skates are very rigid so wear thick socks!!
Cold and slippy
Great place but food prices creeping up cloud possibly do with refurbishment
Excellent family day out, will definitely recommend and will be returning back soon.

Watching whitley mischiefs play ice hockey
Just as I remember it from my childhood, lovely day out with the kids we worked hard for our chips and curry which were lush too.
Had great fun skating with grand kids.
This was a really good place and I would really recommend it
Another amazing game!!
Still great fun and the kids loved it will definitely visit again
Loved it. Needs a little bir of rejuvenation and bringing back to modern standards but otherwise great.
Awesome place good fun
Building is a bit old but the price is cheaper than the life centre one
Been twice now, each time it’s been great fun ! Highly recommended!
Big rink, reasonably priced and they even have 15 min free lessons.
We tend to visit for the ice hockey and it's always a great atmosphere
Decent ice rink but very dates and in need of a refurbishment. Ice skates are hit and miss in terms of quality, bring your own if you've got them!!
A bit dated but the only ice rink around for miles. Pretty much grew up in here as a child and it hasn’t changed much at all.
It's an old ice rink that's a little bit tired but it's the only one on Tyneside and it supports figure skating lessons, public skating and the only ice hockey team in area.Whitley Warriors. So it needs supporting to accommodate all the people who participate in these sports. More...
Went to the shop inside. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Great family day out
Decent rink but exterior looks a bit factory like
Great day out. Slight leak coming from ceiling though.
Whether your a pro ice scater or a beginner this is for you.
Lovely day nice food
Great fun with the kids
Loved big V
Old, a bit run down, but what fun, we'll worth a visit, even buying your ticket is a treat.
Great ice rink! Took my son on a morning session and had a great time. Despite it being the school holidays the rink wasn't jam packed. We will be back!
We did the afternoon session with Olivia and her friends. Great place. Even helpful with tips and directions. Kids loved it. Deffo be back.
Mint place !
Good fun and offers good food

Enjoyed, will go again, just didn't like the blisters on the inside of my foot!
Great place to skate, for both amateurs and those who know what they're doing. Great fun.

great place to spend a few hours kids love it
Great price and a great place to take the kids

Decent ice rink. Could certainly do with a makeover although is one of the better sized ice rinks I've been too
Lovely day out. Quite expensive for a family though.
Great day out would go again loved it
Absolutely amazing the whole place is just welcoming and fun to be in especially when your skating or watching a match. Food is nice but could have more options on and staff are lovely exempt from the people at the part for hiring skates. Would recommend for people to go have fun and a laugh. More...

The ice rink has been there for as long as I can remember but it is still a great family day out and a great way to get some exercise while having fun.
The staff are friendly, the skaters always seem to be friendly too, the shop on site is great value particularly if you want to buy skates. If you have lessons the coaches are great, really effective and non-judgemental teachers. More...
Skating is always fun. Glad to have this in the area
Its a fun place to take ur kids
Could be cleaner but all round a nice day out
Spot on great place
Had a fab time
Best place in town. Everyone should experience this at least once especially at Christmas time.
Come here this time every year for Xmas treat.
Place of whitley warriors hockey team
Love a bit of ice hockey, wrap up warm
Fun for all the family
For the first time skating on the Tuesday the 13 but it was really good n good music
Fun for the kids and good price
Ice skating ⛸ is soooooooooooo fun!!!!!!!
The hire skates could use abit other then tht, it's a gd price
We've decided to take up skating as a family and this is our closest rink. The ice is fairly good in general, definitely not wet, although condensation drips can make for rough spots in places. It's also a reasonably big rink and while it isn't new it's perfectly functional. The public skating sessions are 2 hours long. We've not been terribly impressed with the skates they hire. It can take quite a few iterations to find ones that aren't blunt. We've bought our own adult skates now (there's a good shop on site), and second-hand ones for the kids, as having your own sharp skates makes all the difference.There are quite a few instructors available if you want private lessons and they seem reasonably priced. If you have weekdays available, it's a really good quiet time to meet the instructor and the ice is really smooth. There are group adult and children's lessons available too. More...
Lot's of fun.
Great game great atmosphere,
Nice place to go for something to do with friends or family only downsides are toilets ain't the nicest and if you hire skates they are blunt and hurt your feet badly
Brilliant day out. Came for my daughters 9th birthday.
A very good place to take the family.
Had a great time ice skating with the daughter havent been for years brilliant x
Great place and lots of fun, a little rough around the edges but still good.
Kids had fun!

As described, it's an ice rink. Reasonable price, friendly staff.
Excellent value for money kids loved it x
Good place to visit. Friendly staff.
Great fun, ended up signing up to the weekly ice skating lessons which are good value. Plenty of parking space and good prices. Skate hire is an extra few pounds or bring your own. More...
Place needs a little revamp, bit dated, seems a bit dull
Great fun but i got ill from the food
Has so much fun today
It enter taning
Nice ice rink. Reasonable prices and boot hire. Food available on site. Worth a visit if you like skating
Doctor phone fix
fantastic a enjoy
At the end of the day if you go ice skating it's the condition of the ice which matters most of all !!! I must admit it has improved over the last year however it could be better.Prices are fair,shop is good staff are great. More...
Good fun but could look better.
I go there often with my m8s Nd it's fun but food a bit deer
Getting on a bit now
Great rink, food is really nice and the service is good :)
Went to the ice rink last night with my granddaughter and my wife and Michelle,Kaitlyns mother.Kaitlyn was practicing her routine for her next level badge. I,on the other hand haven't skated for thirty years.I hired skates from the rink. They are blue and the blades were a little rusty. Nothing wrong with that but I think it didn't help me as I skittered around the arena ha ha.Good fun though. There is also a cafe and a bowling alley upstairs. Good value for money. More...
Visited for my little cousins birthday party and had a fab time. It's been 20 years since I have stepped on the ice but it all came back to me.

Great place for family etc. I learned to skate their and so did my kids
Home of my beloved Warriors
Nice facility with a great little shop. Quite busy on a week-end, but often quite empty during the week so quite good to learn in a relaxed, quiet environment.
