Welcome to Skate Central

Skate Central is open all year round for public skating and private hire. We pride ourselves on being the best value recreational sporting activity in the City.  


If you do not own a pair of skates, you can hire a pair of skates for the sum of £2 and you can choose to hire either inline skates or the more traditional quad skate.


Here at Skate Central we offer what we believe to be the cheapest children's birthday party package in the City.  For more information on prices, opening times and birthday parties please click on the relevant link below .

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Due to the prime ministers announcement this evening we are temporarily closing skate central. This is only a temporary measure and will be reviewed on a regular basis, inline with the prime ministers announcements.


All the signs are that we may be able to commence public skating sometime in July (subject to government confirmation) Our plan is to mark the rink surface and all thoroughfares with 1 meter and 2 meters social distancing markers. Skaters will therefore be able to enjoy the activity (roller disco) whilst observing the social distancing guidelines set down by the government. We are currently considering  using an advanced booking system to book your skating session and/or children’s Birthday party.
