Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum Ice Rink opens between 26th October 2017 until 7th January 2018.


26th October 2017 – 7th January 2018

The Natural History Museum Ice Rink is one of London’s most spectacular winter attractions, with a huge main rink and smaller family space for beginners and children. Skate around the Christmas tree, then sip a hot chocolate while enjoying the festive scene from the Café Bar.

There is no minimum age, but children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. We advise parents to use their discretion whether very young children will enjoy the experience. Skates are available from child size 9 up to an adult size 15. Bob skates are also available for toddlers. Bob skates are double blades that strap onto the shoe.

We have a limited supply of penguin skate aids, which cost £5, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Skate aids cannot be booked in advance. Please speak to Ice Rink staff when you arrive if you want to use a skate aid.
