We think the capital’s outdoor ice rinks offer the most magical setting for any outdoor activity during the darkest months of the year. There’s no better way to get into the spirit of Christmas than to get your skates on and enjoy a fun day out with family and friends. The first ice rinks in London open today!
Booking are already open with tickets for sale. Here’s the list of London’s best ice skating rinks for Christmas 2016, and their planned season start date:
Natural History Museum 11th November
Canary Wharf 11th November
Broadgate Circle 14th November
Tower of London 16th November
Somerset House 17th November
Hampton Court 25th November
This year, Somerset House is on top of my list of ice rinks to vist. The grand 18th-century courtyard that is home to Somerset House ice rink provides a stunning location for a skating session this winter with the Fortnum’s Lodge ice skating packaging deal; from hot chocolate to a romantic fondue for two, making a magical event possibly even more special.
