We’ve reached the best time of the year when London is officially in full festive swing. And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than with a trip to Alexandra Palace’s very own ice rink? Offering a backdrop unlike any other, it’s a top spot this month to glide into the festive season, a la Emilia Clarke in Last Christmas. 

The ice rink at Alexandra Palace is open all year round but December is undeniably the best time to visit, with a number of chilled out and advanced sessions each day.

Selected dates also see the ice rink turn into a dance floor, with funky lighting and chart hits mixed by Ally Pally’s resident DJ. The Ice Disco takes place on three different separate weekends, on both Saturdays and Sundays, from December 18. Kicking off at 7pm, it’s a fine way to combine your festive Saturday night dancing with some icy terrain.

If you get peckish, there’s a lovely little ice café on site, offering all sorts of hot and cold snacks. It’s open Monday to Friday, 11.30am–6pm, and Saturday to Sunday, 10am–6pm.
