London’s First Ever Rooftop Ice Rink Is Now Open For Winter

Tobacco Dock. The Dock. Winter Skylight

Rink-a-dink-dink! You can now ice skate in the sky (well… like the tenth floor) above a Wapping car park.

Skylight London, the rooftop bar we used to know for its summer croquet, has now transformed into a cosy, cheesy retreat. Wrap up warm and slip on some sexy blue skates, because you can now ice skate atop a roof with stunning views of the city.

Melted cheese! Mulled wine! Skating! It’s so seasonal we could literally weep tinsel.

Combine a skating escapade with après-ski vibes, and tuck into some raclette and wine in the cosy, covered depths of the Tobacco Dock multi-storey carpark (don’t worry, they’ve decked it out so it looks like a dreamy alpine den). This year, they’ve even added cosy igloos and huts to relax in!

Book now: you can get ice skating, wine and raclette for two people for the sweet price of £49.

Skylight is open on Thursday and Fridays from 5-11pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 12-11pm. You’ll find it a few floors up at Tobacco Dock, Pennington Street Entrance, Wapping, E1W 2SF.

(Pssst: prefer salsa to skating? Head down to the ground floor for the awesome new Last Days of Havana pop-up!)
