Christmas Skating in London

It’s December, you are officially allowed to get over the top excited about Christmas!

Even the coldest, hardest heart has to feel a little pang of joy at the sight of London’s festive sparkle.

Twinkle lights are glittering all over town, ribbon covered fir trees rustling in the wind, sitting room windows glowing out into the cold night air.

Nowhere do you feel it more than at London’s Natural History Museum.

Day and night the ice and surrounding festivities shimmer away.

All watched over by the wise old museum.

Pull on your winter woolies and get swept up in the romance of it all!

Wrapped up nice and warm.

Double pom pom hat

Black jeans

Upstairs you’ll find a quaint little cafe that’s warm and smells of cinnamon and coffee.

The perfect place to watch the action from.

And perhaps gather a little Dutch courage!

Then it’s time to get your skates on!

Don’t worry, it’s easier than you remember.

And if not, well… you can always grab a helping hand!

Don’t go thinking those penguins or the carousel are just for kiddos.

Oh no.

You can’t let them have all the fun!

Kick back and get in touch with your inner child.

Unless you never lost touch, that is.

I don’t think there’s anywhere quite so festive in London.

Just the place to warm the heart and get into the swing of things.

Open every day except Christmas day, right in front of The Natural History Museum.

Next to South Ken tube station.

Get your skates on!
