We run a number of quieter sessions throughout the season which are suitable for disabled skaters, including wheelchair users and those with other disabilities and additional needs.

Set against the backdrop of the Waterhouse building, the Ice Rink at the Natural History Museum is one of the most magical places to be this winter.

Our professional, disability-aware ice marshals will be on hand to give advice and assistance to skaters.

A carer may accompany you and skate for free, with up to three additional skaters, who will need to buy tickets.

Please note:

  • these sessions have a maximum capacity of 35 wheelchair users
  • wheelchairs and electric buggies are only allowed onto the ice during these dedicated sessions due to health and safety reasons.
