The arena boasts 2 spectacular ice pads used for a wide range of recreational and professional skating sessions, activities and events as well as a large cafeteria and bar.

These courses include a 30 minute lesson every day, meal deal and all day skating pass! The best way to spend a half term by keeping active and making friends!


Cardiff is vastly becoming the go to place for events and with so many arenas and event spaces popping up all over the city, the calibre of event that happens here in Cardiff, is getting higher and higher, take the Viola Arena for instance. Putting the events held at the arena to one side for a moment, come rain or shine, the Viola Arena is most definitely somewhere you should come and experience. This state of the art building has a lot to offer to not only experienced skaters, but those who have always wanted to give it a try. Viola Arena is also to the elite Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey team and their games are most definitely worth a watch, whether your an ice hockey fan or not, every game offers an experience unrivalled by other sporting fixtures. I was really impressed by the slick running of the arena and I can’t recommend it enough.
