I love all the little outdoor ice rinks that pop up all over London around Christmas time, Our favourite is the one at the Natural History Museum. However, there are just so many things going on in December that I always wish that the Ice Rinks would stay put a little longer to brighten up those dreary weeks of January and February.
Well guess what?? There are still a few ice rinks open past 31st December. The Richmond Rink ( which closed for the winter last week) will feature in my #CityCountryLife later today, so don't forget to look out for that but until then, here are some great places for you to do your best 'Bambi on Ice' impersonations:
Canary Wharf Ice Rink : situated in the heart of London's Canary Wharf, it's the only rink in town to feature a skate path that leads skaters along a trail of fairy lights beneath the soaring sky scrapers
Broadgate Ice Rink: Located in the City, this is a great rink for skaters of all levels and all ages. There are also plenty of restaurants and cafe in nearby Broadgate Circle, ideal for a great day out.
Alexandra Palace- This is the place to skate all year round, whatever the weather at an iconic London location.
If you can't make it up to the capital you can still get a feel for the big smoke online- for example could play online bingo games at houseofbingo.co.uk where they fun have a Big Ben game.
