On a recent trip to York in mid December we were treated to some amazing and beautifully hand carved ice sculptures as part of Yorks Ice Trail #iceart weekend. All in all there were around 30 different ice carvings scattered around famous landmarks and streets in the city as part of Yorks Ice Trail 2015. The awesome iceart ice sculptures were designed and carved by Glacial Art who are the UK’s leading ice sculpting company. Check out some of our photos below!
