14 November – 13 January 2019
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 Instagram posts! Skating by day is a veritable family affair, with kids and parents of all ages on the ice. After sunset, “Skate Lates” feature a specially curated programme of music throughout the season, including takeovers by the likes of radio station Balamii, Tottenham based club Five Miles, and DJ Emily Rawson with the Rock The Bellescrew. Après skate, recharge at Fortnum & Mason’s Lodge, in the west wing of Somerset House, where you can munch on British classics like Welsh Rarebit and mince pie with clotted cream, or splash some cash at the rink-side shopping arcade.
