Ice Skating at Somerset House

News 24 Oct 2017

We are eagerly counting down the days to the opening of Somerset House ice rink, the top place in London to skate throughout the holiday and winter season.

Offering you the opportunity to ice skate in one of London’s most historic settings. Somerset House was originally built as a glamorous, palatial building for Edward Seymour the Duke of Somerset in 1547, the House has had many occupants; from exiled Queens and parliament offices to art galleries. The building itself has been torn down, rebuilt and extended to form the beautiful icon we know today which houses the ice rink within its 18th century courtyard from 15 November 2017 – 14 January 2018 annually.
