What people say

"The Somerset House Christmas ice rink is a yearly favorite in London. This year, it will be sponsored by Switzerland Tourism and will be open from November 15, 2023 to January 14, 2024. The rink will be open every day except Christmas Day, from 8:45 AM to 11:15 PM. The prices for adults range from £10 to £25, while children’s tickets cost between £8 and £13. The rink is located in the spectacular courtyard of Somerset House, which will be transformed into a glorious festive destination with a uniquely Swiss winter vibe courtesy of Switzerland Tourism. In addition to skating, there will be a Shelter Boutique pop-up charity shop, DJs, and a stunning 40ft Christmas tree. You can also enjoy gourmet dining at the pop-up alpine restaurant, Chalet Suisse by Jimmy Garcia, in partnership with Switzerland Tourism. Further treats off the ice can be enjoyed at the Skate Lounge by Whispering Angel, where you can enjoy a glass of Provence Rosé."
"Glide across the ice at the Somerset House Ice Rink, set against the backdrop of this neoclassical building. It's a magical experience in the heart of central London."
"Head to Somerset House for some ice skating fun in a beautiful 18th century courtyard. Grab your tickets online in advance because session times do fill up fast! "
