London’s most ‘instagrammable’ ice rink is back for an unmissable skating experience this festive season.
Set against the striking backdrop of the Queen’s House, visitors will have the opportunity to skate in the beautiful surrounds of a UNESCO World Heritage site, and this year the rink is even bigger.
New measures have been introduced this year to make sure that everybody can enjoy the ice rink safely. There will be hygiene standards fit for royalty, with enhanced cleaning regimes and hand washing sanitation facilities available. Meanwhile staggered skate sessions will ensure fewer people on the ice at any one time.
The Queen’s House ice rink is open from 20 November 2020 – 10 January 2021 from 11am - 8pm (last skate 7PM) on off-peak days or 10am - 9pm (last skate 8pm) on peak days. What better treat this Christmas than to skate in front of the ‘House of delight’ built especially for James I’s Queen? You will be able to soak up the beautiful surroundings of Greenwich Park, take in the spectacular views across London and enjoy a hot chocolate while watching the skaters at the only outdoor ice rink in south London this Christmas.
If you want to make a day of it, there is so much more to see and do - from visiting the award-winning Cutty Sark, seeing the iconic Armada portrait in the Queen’s House, learning about the origins of time at the Royal Observatory and exploring the collection at the National Maritime Museum. The beautiful Greenwich market is only two minutes away for Christmas shopping. With easy transport links, Greenwich is just eight minutes from London Bridge, or arrive by boat along the River Thames.
Prices for a skating session, including skate hire start from:
Skate aids are available to hire for children but must be pre-booked.
Sessions will be running at limited capacity to follow government guidelines, so advanced booking is recommended.
