Christmas Eve ice skating at the Natural History Museum

Every winter we have to to go ice skating – even though we’re not that skilled. And although it now seems like a lifetime ago, this year (or should I say last year?) we opted for ice skating at the Natural History Museum on Christmas Eve, an expensive but oh so festive treat!

Pre-booking is necessary at this most popular skating destination – but to get the slot you want it doesn’t have to be too far in advance – in fact I booked for Christmas Eve just a couple of days before. They then recommend that you get there 40 minutes before your allotted time slot to give you time to collect tickets, queue for boots – and probably spend a bit of cash in the overpriced café… which does offer an excellent view of the ice rink for those non skating observers!

However, bah humbugness aside, it is an extremely well run operation and the setting is a treat. We even managed to witness a marriage proposal (and acceptance) by the lovely Christmas tree in front of all the skaters.

There’s only a few days left of festive skating in London –in fact the ice rink at the Natural History Museum shuts this weekend on the 7th January – so if you’re interested you should probably get your skates on and head on down!
