The category B listed building was designed in the art deco style by architects J B Dunn and G L Martin in 1938-39.  Murrayfield ice rink has operated continuously since 1957 under private ownership.

Prices: £5-£6.50 admission and £1-£1.80 skate hire.

The ice rink was closed in 2020 during the pandemic due to management concerns about the financial viability of the ice rink and rapidly changing government restrictions.
