Framed by statuesque trees wreathed in 76,000 fairy lights on one side and the imposing Victorian architecture of the Natural History Museum on the other, this rink is one of London's most beautiful. The view also takes in an illuminated carousel (£2 a pop) and a gigantic, bauble-adorned Christmas tree. Magic FM is piped through the speaker system which means the likes of Chicago, 10cc and Phil Collins will sustain the feel-good factor.

The Café Bar has all the ambience of an airport lounge, but it boasts a great elevated view over the length of the rink. For more substantial edibles head down to the food stalls adjacent, where skaters can top up their energy levels on a selection of pies, burgers, and fish and chips.
