Whilst there are plenty of ice rinks in London to slide across during the winter season, the rink perfectly placed outside the picturesque Natural History Museum may be the most scenic and festive of them all.
Open from October through to January, this rink is an earlier opener, allowing plenty of time to don those skates. Weekends and weekday evenings in December are undoubtedly the busiest so if you can, try to visit during the earlier months or if you must visit in December, try to go in the day during the week.
You may just feel like you’re featuring in a scene on a Christmas card as you soar across the ice with the imposing Natural History Museum towering over you! Don’t forget to attempt to take a snap next to the beautifully decorated Christmas tree taking the centre spot in the ice.
Afterwards, warm up in the Café Bar with a creamy hot chocolate or a spiced mulled wine. From there you will also have the chance to watch the skaters with a panoramic birds-eye view.
