Christmas ice skating rinks in London

Ice skating is one of London's favourite winter pastimes, especially in the run-up to Christmas.

There are several permanent indoor London ice skating rinks, but in winter you’ll find many more outdoor ice rinks popping up across the capital.

Iconic London locations that hosted winter pop ups in 2017 included the beautiful Somerset House, the historic Hampton Court Palace and the majestic Natural History Museum. There was no open-air ice rink at the Coca-Cola London Eye or indoor ice skating rink at Westfield London in 2017. Check back nearer the time for pop-up ice rinks in winter 2018.
