Natural History Museum Ice RinkThe Natural History Museum's annual icing-over of its gardens kicks off again in November - and this winter the main rink will be larger than ever. The 1,050-square-metre rink is surrounded by 76,000 glowing pea-lights dangling from the overhanging trees outside Alfred Waterhouse's imposing building. Additional attractions include a smaller 100-square-metre rink for youngsters, a stylish balcony cafe/bar when you can warm your hands and insides on vin chaud or hot chocolate and a classic fairground carousel. Big-foots amongst you will be pleased to know that skates go up to adult size 15, while five wheelchair sessions are available - see website for details. The Ice Rink and Cafe Bar are available for private hire too for a minimum of 150 guests. Last year there was a Christmas Fair throughout December which proved a great spot to get into the Christmas spirit and do some unusual shopping.
