Kensington Mums was invited for a fun mums night at the Natural History Museum ice rink which is located in South Kensington. I met up with Mum of four and author Arnie Rozah Krogh and lifestyle blogger Sarah’s Lifestyle Diary for a fun night out. Having always been with the kids, it was a nice change to meet up with like minded mums. The Natural History Museum ice rink is an outdoor ice rink and they cater for all ages. They have a parent and toddler skate sessions as well and penguin skate club for kids aged four to eight.
We were booked for 7pm skate session and got there for 6.30pm to queue for our skates. We got our skates and hats on on and put our bags in the cloakroom (which you have to pay £1 for). I used to skate a child, so I slowly got into the swing of things as soon as I hit the ice rink. Sarah hasn’t been skating for a while, but managed pretty well I think. Arnie was trying to multi-task one handed using her phone to take pictures and vlog while ice skating! Needless to say, she ended up on her behind. The staff were very helpful and came to help her straight away. The set up is beautiful with a Christmas tree right in the middle of the ice rink. There is a cafe bar as well and Hotel Chocolat is also tucked right next to the ice rink which Sarah and Arnie enjoyed.
We were also joined by mum of twins and family photographer Juliana from Captured by Juliana who braved the cold and took some amazing shots of our unforgettable mums night out.
Enjoy browsing through the pictures and read the testimonial from the Mammas. Make sure you also watch the video edited by Arnie. We feel it is important to make some time to meet up with your friends, be it like minded mums, neighbours or cousins. It is a great way to reconnect with yourself, and most of all have fun.
Thank you Natural history museum ice rink for inviting us!
It was a lovely ice- skating experience which was the perfect way to kick start the christmas vibe for the year of 2017! I could say we glided effortlessly, but hey we are mamas and we haven’t ice-skated in years. I think we did pretty good job though. The evening was made even more perfect with a cup of Hotel Chocolat Hazelnut drink which is divine! I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for somewhere to ice- skate and it is great for kids too with the cafe on site and the carousal for entertainment. Read up on my experience on www.mycitymylondon.me which will be published this week!
I’ve been wanting to do ice skating at NHM for the past 3 years since we moved to London. Yet there was always something else happening that distracted me.
Recently the invite came to join my fellow mamas for a skating night. I said yes immediately. It was actually a perfect night for skating. Being a Monday it wasn’t too busy. The staff were all very very friendly. When I took a tumble, a lovely staff came to my rescue and made sure I was ok. Having a warm cafe up top helps in the cosy evening. Ending the fun tumbly evening with a warm salted Caramel hot chocolate from Hotel Chocolat was the cherry on the cake. I’ll definitely recommend NHM Ice Skating as a fun night out.
Connect with like minded mums is what we like best. Until the next Mums night out, make sure to check out the top places to go ice skating in London this festive season.
