Ice Rinks

It’s true that most winters in London are without snow and some of us do really miss it. Well, the city still looks stunning with impressive decorations all over it. In some places you could even enjoy the artificial snow.
Another way to experience the charming winter feeling is to try the Ice Rink. Dancing or crawling, you will enjoy the magical atmosphere. The smile will stay on the whole time and much laughter is guaranteed.
There are a few of them in various parts of London – Ice Rink Canary Wharf, Somerset House Ice Rink, National History Museum Ice Rink and many others. Each is truly majestic and beautiful. Try them all!
