Natural History Museum Ice Rink

KidRated’s Natural History Museum Ice Rink Top Tips:

  • Warm up in the ski lodge style cafe
  • Use both entrances: Exhibition Road and Cromwell Road
  • Get your skates on! It’s only open until January

Ice skating and winter go together like marshmallows and hot chocolate. At the Natural History Museum Ice Rink you can skate this winter in a beautiful setting. In the shadows of the great museum, the rink is caters to all abilities and ages.

 

At 1000 metres squared the rink is big enough that confident skaters can whizz past backwards if they so wish but won’t knock into anyone on the ice for the first time. However, if you are a beginner or have young kids with you it might be wise to book a morning session at a quieter time. The closer to Christmas it gets, the busier and busier the ice rink becomes.

 

The Natural History Museum Ice Rink is not the only place to skate outside in London this winter. You will also find icerinks at Somerset House, under the London Eye, and at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. Why not watch our review of Hampton Court Ice Rink?

 

Wheelchair sessions are available, but at other times wheelchairs are not permitted onto the ice. Young children can wear two blade bob skates. There is also a limited number of penguin skate aids to rent at the rink.  If you don’t fancy skating, the cafe is great and serves perfect post-skating snacks like mince pies as well as hot food, hot drinks and alcohol.
