Once you have selected the venue where you will go, you must take care of the equipment. Some Leicester skating venues may have equipment rental offices so you might be able to take ice skates and use them when you want to go instead of buying your own ice skates. However if you plan to go skating on a regular basis you better buy your own ice skates. Indeed buying a new pair of skates may be a bit expensive and if this is out of your budget you can simply buy second hand skates. What is important is the skates to fit you well and have well preserved blades. Good option for your kid would be to rent skates as his or her feet will grow fast.
