Author Editor - 1 minute read

The countdown to Christmas is on. Meaning one thing: its time to plan your festive weekends and we're opting to make our way around the best ice-skating rinks in London.

Our top picks? Well, look no further.

National History Museum

The popular ice-skating rink located in front of the Natural History Museum is a must for your diary. Skate around the towering Christmas tree with the sparkling lights reflecting off the ice.

There is nothing more dreamy than spending an evening here indulging in a hot chocolate or mulled wine whilst overlooking the skaters.

Somerset House

This year marks 20 years of Somerset House having their annual ice-skating rink in their picturesque courtyard. Spending an evening in this magical venue is a must for your festive activities. Stay on after dark to experience ‘Skate Late’ where a DJ will be playing some of your favourite songs – where else would you want to spend your evening?

Tower of London

Situated beside the famous Tower of London you will find one of the most iconic ice-skating rinks in London throughout Christmas. This ice rink is located in the dry moat outside the Tower which makes it incredibly unique and promises a very special evening spent on the ice.


An ice-skating rink that brings something different to London is Skylight. On the top floor of a multi-storey car park, you will find London’s first rooftop ice rink. Head here and experience views across some of the most iconic buildings located in London.
