Strawberry Hill Ice Rink Opens Saturday – December 5th

The Ice Rink returns this Saturday in front of Walpole’s Gothic fairy tale castle in Strawberry Hill, a pure white and turreted Grade One listed building. From dusk, the House will be lit from within, highlighting its unique collection of Renaissance stained glass windows.

Stone Rowe Brewer are once again proud to be supporting this temporary ice rink and to play our part in bringing it back to Twickenham – the spiritual home of ice skating.

There will also be  an exhibition of photographs of ice skating from the Sports Drome – Richmond Ice Rink – which closed in 1992.
