Ice Skating at Somerset House, London

London has taken cues from New York with a growing number of exciting ice-skating rinks appearing around the City. Swirling your partner around the ice locked in a romantic stance, or sliding with style whilst admiring the London scenery are both exciting ways to spend a glamorous London break.

B+B Belgravia’s central location takes time out of the equation when deciding on where to skate first.

 

The Natural History Museum

Taking a sidestep from its usual activities, visitors can skate on a 950 square metre ice rink half the size of a football pitch from 2nd November to the 6th January. It is open 10am until 10pm most days. Ticket prices start at £9.

Book online with Ticketmaster or book in person at the ice rink box office in the museum gardens.

 

Tower of London

Skating is available outside one of London’s most iconic landmarks until the 6th of January 2013. Beefeaters and crows look on as visitors take to the dry moat and show off their skills. Ice guides are available for supervised group skating (£32 per session). Sessions last for one hour, and wheelchairs are welcome except during the last session of the day.

Peak time tickets are £13, off peak tickets cost £11.

 

Somerset House

The grand square outside this cultural landmark is hosting the most glamorous outdoor ice rink this year. Their unique offering comes in the form of ice skating club nights, which are not to be missed. Top DJ’s and artists play whilst crowds dance on the light covered arena. Upcoming performances include the Ministry of sound radio, Joey Negro, DJ Mag, and Lovesick.

Prices increase the later the sessions start with a 1hour 15-minute session at 16:15 costing £12.50. Individual prices are set for each club night.

 

B+B Belgravia has the modern comforts and hearty breakfasts to prepare you for the ice. We also have the comfortable beds and furnishings and to rest your weary legs. It is handy that some of the best shopping districts in the world, such as Harrods, are nearby should you be tired from all the skating.
