Apart from being one of the most popular cities in the world for tourists, London offers something for everyone and it’s in abundance when it comes to the choices of things to do for all ages. One great seasonal attraction is it’s amazing selection of ice rinks. Not only is it good fun but also not bad for a spot of exercise before you take on the Christmas Day feasting.
Best Price Car Sales has selected the best outdoor ice skating rinks in London, which we hope you will remember to consider in 2021.
Natural History Museum ice rink
At night, this venue is absolutely stunning, with its backdrop of the Natural History Museum lit up in the background and the ice rink is surrounded by beautifully decorated Christmas trees with fairy lights. There’s also a cosy cafe bar and balcony for viewing, if you fancy just going to people watch. A lovely venue for capturing the heart of Christmas, and boy do we all need it this year
Somerset House ice rink
Somerset House is one of London’s oldest and more renowned ice rinks. The Fortnum & Mason rink is situated in the Courtyard, and surrounds a 40ft Christmas tree. The whole setting doesn’t get more Christmasy than this. The venue also has an ice skating school and a gorgeous Alpine themed Fortnum’s Lodge. And your special Christmas could be topped off by the Fortnum & Mason’s shop, where you can find a whole array of high quality festive delights. A bar and cafe is also on site, if you’re in the mood for a warm cosy drink to take it all in.
Rooftop ice rink Bar Elba, Waterloo
This is a tiny ice rink in comparison to the others we have suggested so far, but given its location on top of Bar Elba, it does support the best views of London. And you have a fully stocked bar, with mulled wine and hot cocktails to help improve your skating experience. This venue isn’t classed as a family place, as it’s over 21s only. Bar Elba is located at 109-117 Waterloo Road.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland ice rink
This ice rink looks like a magical film set, as the ice rink is set around the famous Hyde Park Christmas decorated bandstand, and to top it off, there’s even a brass band playing Christmas tunes as you’re skating around on this gigantic ice rink. Be warned, this place gets busy so expect a lot of bumps while you’re mastering your ice skating skills in the gorgeous surroundings of Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.
During the festive time, we hope friends and family manage to find the time to celebrate the Christmas spirit in some way or another, even if it’s the case where many of these venues may not be open in December 2020 due to the current lockdowns and social distancing restrictions in place in most parts of the UK.
