The best ice skating rinks in London
After nearly 30 years of popping up in the middle of Broadgate Circle, Broadgate ice rink moved to Exchange Square in 2014 and has made itself a firm favourite. The outdoor rink offers group bookings, skating aids and lessons, and there will be a schedule of special events announced in due course.
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 'LuminoCity'. 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.
