A skate path, The Tasting Room and towering surroundings offer a very civilized session on the ice.

Our business district's soaring towers lend Canary Wharf Ice Rink an imposing backdrop, and some exciting extras help it to keep up with its extravagant surroundings, this year themed 'Luminosity'. 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 and hot buttered rum. Visitors who don't fancy skating can admire those on the ice (or giggle at them trying not to fall over) from the heated outdoor viewing terrace.

Canary Wharf is my favourite place in London and I loved visiting ice rink. I have been to here with my friends. The area is really stunning offering excellent views of high rise buildings, restaurants and bright twinkling lights. Our experience was very very good. We were quite excited to visit this place and we did enjoyed a ton. Though it was little expensive but that ok but its worth a visit at least once.

I visited on a Monday afternoon in the middle of January and it felt like the rink had been shut down just for me, only 8 people on the ice so it didnt matter if i fell down on my backside as there werent anyone around to see it :) Set within the Canary Wharf estate is a beautiful ice rink which is surrounded by high rise buildings, restaurants and twinkly lights. The price is about right for what you would pay for London, I'm sure Somerset House would be more expensive. Would love to go back again next Christmas

Ice-skating in London is always crazy expensive, especially for the short sessions, but I really enjoyed skating at this rink last year, the staff was pretty nice and the ice was fairly empty which is great if you're trying to practice going backwards for the first time like I was. For the price I recommend staying on the ice throughout your whole session, and maybe after a drink or two near by you'll want to come back and skate again. I went on a Thursday night and there were only 10 of us on the ice, making the experience a bit more peaceful and fun for us.

It's skating, in Canary Wharf (kinda glam) but also (kinda... corporate.) Staff v helpful, ice a bit on the soggy side. Good times though, good times.


The best place to do ice skate in London! Huge area to skate around and the scenery full of skyscrapers is amazing. The only drawback is the high price/hour but you can easily find some offers over the internet.


Love love love this ice skating rink. It's amongst many high rise buildings and has great views. The rink is quite small, but is really atmospheric especially in the evening. They have polar bears for the kids and play some awesome music.


The worst skates I've ever tried...

The ice is good quality, also the location has a good atmosphere. But, for such a high entry fee I really do expect basic quality skates, as the ones given were cheap and rigid, made my feet hurt after 5 minutes and after an hour I have left with dirty wounds... (I'm not a beginner, I know how to skate)


recently visited the ice rink with my grand children who came up from kent, they enjoyed it so much we are going again today. staff great and to be in the open air is so different and more enjoyable. roll on next year,


I've been to this ice rink on many occasions AND I've loved it every time and I think the customer service is amazing and the rink its self is wonderful

Great outdoor rink in a dramatic setting surrounded by the canary wharf buildings. The rink as an unusual shape and allows for fun laps.
