  • Description
    It isn’t Christmas without ice skating and this year one of London’s most popular ice rinks is back for a magical season! Get your skates on and catch that Christmassy feeling at the iconic Natural History Museum Ice Rink.

    Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Natural History Museum, also known as the Waterhouse building, this spacious ice rink has an atmosphere like no other. A statement Christmas tree right in the middle of the ice rink? Check. Fairy lights nestled in the trees surrounding the ice rink? Check. Hints of mulled wine coming from the museum’s Café Bar? Check. The Natural History Museum Ice Rink really does everything you need to have a joyful winter evening!

    Make sure you dress up cosily and show off your moves. Haven’t got any? No problem! Whether you happen to be a pro or have never ice skated before, the Natural History Museum Ice Rink is a fun and safe environment for all levels. For an added cost children can get a little extra help from the adorable penguin skate aids and glide freely across the ice.

    If you feel peckish at any point, you’ll have the option of treating yourself to some delicious treats (as well as some mulled wine and other hot drinks) at the Café Bar and enjoying the bird’s eye view of the rink from the café’s balcony.

    Don’t miss this wonderful Christmas experience in the heart of London!
