Ice Skating in London

Disclaimer: this article is intended to grow in time so it won’t currently include all ice-skating rinks in London. Give us a year, though, and we’ll likely have tried every possibility 😀

Ellie and I are definitely not pros in ice skating. Nonetheless a while ago we did realise it’s a lot of fun and definitely a way we enjoy spending an hour or two every chance we get. Not to forget that an hour of slow ice skating burns about 400 calories! To be honest we do enjoy being fit but we also want to have fun in the process so you’ll see us ice skating, dancing, hiking, walking, playing on the beach, and a million other things which bring out the child in you.

So let the listing begin!

All year round ice skating rinks in London

Queens ice skating London

Queens Ice Skating rink [location]

This is the ice skating rink that turn Mondays into the day you can’t wait. Why? Because ice skating on Monday in half off which makes it the very fair price of £6.00.

Our first visit to the Queens ice skating on a Saturday evening and surprisingly it was rather empty for what we thought would be the busiest time. The rink itself is absolutely lovely. The lighting is flattering and relaxing and the playful artworks on the walls around make you feel bubbly happy.

If there’s anything we would like to see changed about this place is the music playlist (and the volume as it was a bit way too loud) but that, of, course is a matter of personal preferences.

TIP: You can’t just pop in there unless you’ve made a booking on their website prior to your visit, so click here to book.

Skates: You can rent skates on the Queens ice skating rink but be warned they’re not very sharp (yet surprisingly comfortable).

Bonus: The place has bowling, billiard, and a restaurant, so even your non-ice skating friends will have something to do.
