Skate in a magical winter haven in the heart of the city at the Natural History Museum’s open-air ice rink.
The spectacular 950-square-metre (10,225-square-feet) rink is nestled in front of the iconic South Kensington museum and surrounded by 76,000 glittering fairy lights.
Visit the museum’s Café Bar for winter warmers, and watch the skaters glide on the ice from the cafe’s balcony.
Opening times vary, but most ice skating sessions run between 10am and 10pm, with extended opening hours on weekends and in the days leading up to Christmas, as well as on New Year’s Eve when the rink opens until 0.30am. The rink is closed on Christmas Day.
