Go ice skating in London at the Natural History Museum, as their ice rink returns for 2017.

Skate news, everybody! London’s Natural History Museum has announced the return of its wintertime skating season, and it might surprise you to know that their ice rink will be back VERY soon: from next Thursday, October 26th, in fact.

One of the more picturesque places to pirouette on the ice in London (you can pirouette, can’t you?), the rink comes decorated with a whopping great Christmas tree in the middle, while the Café Bar alongside serves up hot chocolate from Hotel Chocolat, cream teas or prosecco and cake.

While you’re there, don’t miss the amazing whale skeleton suspended in the museum’s main hall, or, indeed, their whale exhibition. It’s whale-y good fun. (Sorry. So sorry.)

Try it yourself: The nearest tube is South Kensington. Adult tickets start at £12.65, with discounts for children and families. The ice rink is open 11am – 9pm most days until January 7 2017, but check their website for details.
