Welcome Winter!

Winter is coming and there isn't a better plan than ice skating. Every season we give you some different ideas to make plans around London. Now it's time to talk about the ice rinks around the city! Winter is cold and rainy but it can be very funny too!

Natural History Museum Ice Rink

Alfred Waterhouse's stunning Natural History Museum once again provides the backdrop for London's most enchanting ice-rink: a 1,000-metre-square outdoor affair with a Christmas tree at its centre and a smaller rink for children. Returning this year is a rinkside fairground carousel, and spectators can take in the scene with a hot chocolate or mulled wine from the balcony cafĂ© bar overlooking the ice. The trees are decked with thousands of fairy lights to add to the festive atmosphere. 

Canary Wharf Ice Rink

The Canary Wharf Ice Rink returns to its spot surrounded by soaring towers. Skaters can glide across the 1,100m sq rink, down a dram in the rinkside bar or just watch the action from the viewing gallery. There's also a glittering skate path through trees lit by fairy lights. 


The open-air Eyeskate rink is situated in Jubilee Gardens, in the shadow of the London Eye. You don't need to book a flight on the Eye in order to skate but various packages are on offer for those who wish to do so. 

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

The funfair factor of Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland has expanded massively for 2013 – rides are scattered across the site, with four big roller coasters, gentle kiddie rides and some spinning machines. 

We hope you enjoy it! =D
