York Ice Trail 2023

Scroll to explore

The UK’s biggest outdoor Ice Trail and one of York’s best loved events will return for more family friendly fun with a range of magnificent ice sculptures transforming the city centre.

Get ready for  “A Journey Through Time” as the sculptures around the city take you on a walk through history and into the future.

This year the Minster’s sculpture is a ‘Gothic Grotesque’ inspired by the cathedral’s medieval architecture.

Grotesques are decorative stone carvings common in the medieval period, often taking the form of mythical creatures or humorous characters. You can spot hundreds of grotesques on both the outside and inside of the Minster.

The sculpture will be on display outside the cathedral on the South Piazza.

The York Ice Trail is a Make It York Event, sponsored by York Park & Ride. For full details of this year’s trail visit: www.visityork.org/york-ice-trail
