Skate in the magical atmosphere of the Natural History Museum’s open-air ice rink.

Nestled in front of the iconic South Kensington museum, the spectacular rink is surrounded by thousands of fairy lights and features a glittering 30ft (9m) Christmas tree.

Visit the museum’s Café Bar for winter warmers, and watch the skaters glide on the ice from the cafe’s balcony. Or visit Hotel Chocolat’s rink-side stand for luxurious hot chocolates and a range of chocolatey festive gifts.
