Glide on one of London’s most beautiful outdoor ice rinks with Skate at Somerset House in partnership with Fortnum & Mason.

Now in its 20th year, this popular icy experience is set against Somerset House's stunning neoclassical facade, and is open all day and well into the evening.

Enjoy a late-night ice skating session with music by top DJs at one of the Skate Lates. Learn to skate or perfect your skills with Skate School, and let little ones have a go on the ice at the Polar Bear Club.

New for winter 2019 is the Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City, a futuristic city made entirely from gingerbread.

After your session, shop for gifts and festive goodies at Fortnum’s Christmas Arcade, and warm up with wintry food and drinks in Fortnum’s Lodge or Skate Lounge, home to the Baileys Treat Bar offering indulgent Baileys cocktails and hot drinks.
