The Yearn to Learn
Kids get fit, feel healthy and end up brimming with confidence through official NISA ‘learn to skate’ programmes at Queens. Our experienced tutors will guide your nippers through all eight grades, with badges and certificates up for grabs, while grownups can watch from either of our two cafés that overlook the whole rink. Or slip away to MEATliquor for coffee – or something a little stronger.
