Roller rink is always a winner. Such fun for any ability and the staff who patrol the rink are so helpful to anyone who is struggling, offering tips and giving them individual time and support. Cafe always gets busy and the hotdogs are delicious!

No, but they do provide baskets at the shoe counter. Think you pay £1 and they store it and give you a ticket.
