Natural History Museum Ice RinkThe Natural History Museum's annual icing-over of its gardens kicks off again from 30th October. The 1,000 square metre rink outside Alfred Waterhouse's imposing building is surrounded by 80,000 glowing pea-lights dangling from the overhanging trees. 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. The Ice Rink and Cafe Bar are available for private hire too for a minimum of 150 guests. Big-foots amongst you will be pleased to know that skates go up to adult size 15, while penguin skate aids, which cost £5, are available on a first come first served basis. This year the Ice Rink has an interactive Christmas chalet filled with chocolate goodies by Lindt where you can sample truffles and win prizes.
