Natural History Museum Ice Rink opens 05.11.10

One of the reasons we LOVE Christmas time in London is because there’s just so much to do!  We’ve already mentioned the Christmas light ceremonies, and starting today, the seasonal ice skating rinks will begin popping up.

Ice skating season begins with the Natural History Museum.  The museum will be hosting a 1,000 square metre outdoor ice rink and will also have a viewing deck with cafe.  The rink will open on tonight (05.11.10).  For more information click here, and to get your tickets click here.

On Saturday, 13th November, the Westfield Ice Rink will open for the first time.  The specially constructed rink will be smack in the centre of the mall and will offer skater the opportunity to shop and skate.  For more information on Westfield’s Rink click here.
