Hampton Court Palace ice rink - Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey
Until Sunday 6 January (except Christmas Day)

Skate back in time as the ice rink returns to the stunning surroundings of Henry VIII’s spectacular Thames-side Tudor Palace. Why not book an evening session on the rink, which has to be one of the most scenic skating settings, and see the Palace lit up after dark whilst skating under the stars with friends and family? Alternatively, make a day of it: explore the Palace State Apartments, galleries and 65 acres of formal gardens, visit the Ice Rink Café and Bar for some delicious warming food and skate at a time which suits. We recommend booking early for this festive treat with special rates for familiies, students, pensioners and groups. The rink has a limited number of penguin skate aids available during each session which can be booked on a first come, first served basis. Wrap up in warm outdoor clothing and don’t forget to wear gloves. You will really need to get your skates on for this one!
