You may be one of those people who prefer to be snuggled up inside, but why not make it a change this winter and check out these cool Ice Skating rinks! All of these end on 6th January 2013 so hurry and take your friends and family with you.
Canary Wharf Ice Rink
You can admire the tall towers as an amazing backdrop as Ice skaters enjoy the 800 metre rink with a bar for your convenience providing refreshments. And not only that but for all those art loves you can admire the Big Blue Sculpture by Ron Arad from the viewing gallery. There will be a live jazz session every Tuesday, for the Jazz fans. But be aware that under 13’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Eyeskate (London Eye)
This is an open-air ice skating rink for a warm cosy feel right next to the London Eye! You do not have to worry about buying a ticket to go on the London Eye to skate in the rink because they are separate. But if you wish to have both there are packages available. The sessions last only for 45 minutes. And under 8’s must be accompanied by an adult. The prices are £11.25 for Adults and 8£.55 for Children. Click here for more information.
Outdoor Ice Skating at Westfield Stratford City
This ice skating is held at Europe’s largest shopping center. It is an open air ice skating rink where you can see the Olympic Park and hopefully it can be covered with snow if it decides to snow this winter. They will be selling alpaca gloves for those who forget theirs, they will be fair priced and they are warmer than cotton or woven gloves .The sessions are 45 minutes. Penguin skating stabilizers are available for young skaters. For more information click here.
