As the festive season gets into full swing, some of London’s most iconic locations get taken over by spectacular ice rinks. Adorned with thousands of twinkling Christmas lights they provide a wonderful day out for the family. At Birchall Tea we love gliding merrily around in these beautiful locations. Here are our favorites you can visit in London.

Hampton Court Palace

An incredible setting for this 900-metre square ice rink, set in the grounds of Henry VIII’s sixteenth century home. It takes on even more beauty when lit up at night. A magical option in South West London.

Natural History Museum

Set in the backdrop of Alfred Waterhouse’s Natural History Museum, surrounded by trees dripping in fairy lights and a majestic Christmas Tree in the middle, make this one of London’s most beautiful ice-rinks. It’s also large, 1,000 square metres of ice to enjoy and with an adjoining children’s rink it caters for all the family.

Skate At Somerset House

Another stunning location in central London. The grand 18th century courtyard that is home to Somerset House ice rink is quite simply beautiful. There are lots of tempting extras too: the Fortnum’s Lodge will offer Champagne and afternoon tea to keep you going well into the evening.

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

The biggest outdoor rink in the UK set in the heart of Winter Wonderland is surrounded by a Victorian bandstand and more than 100,000 lights. Coupled with all the other great attractions Winter Wonderland brings, this is a great option for those looking to spend the day getting into the festive spirit!

Hyde Park

Canary Wharf 

Set in the heart of London’s business district and its soaring skyscrapers, provide an imposing backdrop to the Canary Wharf Ice rink. The rink comes with some exciting extras to keep up with its extravagant surroundings, an iced path allows skaters to dash off from the main rink and glide below fairy light-laden trees. A pop-up bar and restaurant will serve everything from sandwiches and ales to cheese fondue!
