That time is fast approaching again – the Natural History Museum in South Kensington will be launching its ever-popular outdoor ice skating rink in October, so it’s about time you snapped up your tickets and get your coach to London sorted!
There are lots of reasons you might want to make the journey to London for a day of fun in the chilly weather. Ice skating makes for a fabulous school trip, especially in the midst of London’s biggest and best museums. After a morning of learning all about the planets, the composition of the Earth and earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis, take the class out onto the rink for some skating. It’ll get them moving and they’ll have tons of fun!
Or, if you’re thinking about doing a spot of pre-Christmas shopping, why not take the whole family along? You can hit the rink in the morning and head to the shops later in the day so you don’t have to stash all your bags. It’ll get you nice and warmed up and will be a fantastic family bonding experience.
Ice skating is a really romantic activity for couples looking for something a little bit different, so pick up a hot chocolate or a mulled wine , wrap up in your winter woollens and head out onto the rink. You can hold hands while you skate under the glow of the London lights.
The rink is open from 31st October – 5th January, so there’s plenty of time to get your skates on.
