Don your finest winter-wear to trip the ice fantastic at the grand Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court at Somerset House, which must surely be one of Europe’s most stunning locations for seasonal skating. No matter how impressive (or amateur) your skills, a visit to this 900-metre square outdoor rink will look the very picture of glamour in your Christmas snaps! Skating by day is a veritable family affair, with kids and parents of all ages on the ice. Whilst “Skate Lates” feature a specially curated programme of music throughout the season, including takeovers by the likes of radio station Balamii, Field Day founders Eat Your Own Ears, and London’s biggest hip hop and R&B night Supa Dupa Fly. Recharge après skate at Fortnum & Mason’s Lodge, in the west wing of Somerset House, and munch on British classics like Welsh Rarebit and mince pie with clotted cream, or splash some holiday cash at the rink-side Christmas shopping arcade.
