Natural History Museum Ice Rink

Get your skates on

Book your skate session today to guarantee your place on the ice.

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.

Whether you can dance on ice like Torvill and Dean, or you skate more like Bambi, a visit to the Museum’s Ice Rink is a must this festive season.

Experience the thrill of skating surrounded by fairy lights nestled in frost-covered trees, with the smell of mulled wine and toasted marshmallows in the air.

The Café Bar has a bird's-eye view of the rink and is open daily until the Ice Rink closes. Non-skaters are welcome.

We also run dedicated wheelchair skate sessions throughout the season.
