Skate At Somerset HouseThe grand 18th-century courtyard of Somerset House makes for a spectacular backdrop for one of the most popular ice rinks in town, and 2019 will see the rink return for its 20th year. Skating around under the 40-foot Christmas tree with a hot toddy to keep out seasonal chills is one of London's most appealing winter rituals - and a superb way to ease yourself into the festive spirit. If your youngsters need guidance there's the Polar Cub Club for under 8s. But if you're looking for something altogether more grown up, Skate Lates brings a specially curated programme of music to the rink on nights with takeovers from hot names in the contemporary music scene - this year welcomes Nabihah Iqbal, RockersLDN and Eat Your Own Ears. Get your Christmas shopping done while you're there at The Christmas Arcade, a pop-up version of Fortnum & Mason's occupying 15 rooms in the West Wing of Somerset House filled with hampers, tea caddies, stocking fillers, gifts and games. What's more, to celebrate the launch of major exhibition 24/7, this year will host London's first-ever 24-hour skating event on Saturday 7th December.

 

About Somerset House
