Westfield London Ice Rink


The atrium of the Shepherd's Bush shopping mecca will be transformed into a very festive place to slide around in again for 2014, with the return of their 160-capacity indoor ice rink. Family entertainment, themed sessions, DJs and live performances will keep skaters distracted from their instability, and younger visitors can hire penguin- and seal-shaped stabilisers (£5) to keep them upright. Sessions are an hour long with 40 minutes on the ice, but off peak bumper sessions are available if you think your feet can take longer. Suitable for ages four and up. Children aged four-to-seven must be accompanied by someone aged 16 or over. Booking recommended.

I am glad I only paid £2 for this on YPlan, because it's defintely not worth more - better avoid it! I agree with the previous comment about ridiculous £1 per item policy - especially since they told me that I cannot have my purse on the ice, because it's a hazard, even though it's zipped up. Surely if someone has stuff in their pockets it's much more likely to fall out! I did not have cash with me, and I refused to pay extra £1, because this was not explained anywhere on the ticket. The manager, who seemed to be a kid in early 20s told me that I did not have to bring a purse with me in the first place - the most ridiculous thing you can hear in the shopping center! Also, apparently even though they make you leave your stuff, they are not responsible for its safety, which is all in all ridiculous.

Finally, the rink was small, the quality of ice and my skis was terrible and the staff was rude and inexperienced. Avoid at all costs.

This is without doubt the worst skating experience that I have ever had. There were far too many people allowed on the already small amount of ice at once which led to children being bumped and knocked over by by macho male skaters. The lockers charged £1 per item... yes £1 per item! so my hat, gloves and handbag cost me £3 to store for the one hour of very unsatisfying skating. Also the ice is very thin and is badly kept. It had not been cleaned for some time and was covered in holes and furrows. One star because I can't give minus!
