Family fun at the Natural History Museum Ice Rink

Hailed as a London institution, the iconic Natural History Museum Ice Rink is now open for the 2018 festive season. Set against the stunning backdrop of one of London’s best-loved landmarks, skaters can take to the ice at the enchanting rink from Thursday 25 October throughout the winter period. It has now been announced that the ice rink will stay open longer than ever before, until Sunday 20 January 2019.

The perfect treat as the festive season draws closer, last year saw the Natural History Museum Ice Rink attract more visitors than ever before, with over 165,000 people from across the globe putting on a pair of skates. This year, the glistening ice rink which runs alongside South Kensington’s tree-lined streets will be topped off once again with a sparkling 30ft Christmas tree.

The Café Bar, run by Benugo, will be open for seasonal treats, providing a place to stay warm out of the winter chill. Visitors to the Café Bar can watch all the skate action from a perfectly-positioned viewing balcony. The Café Bar is open daily as a place to unwind after a skate around the shimmering ice rink.
