Active Activities Outdoors

The only outdoor ice rink in south London is officially open

The Ice Rink at the Queen's House in Greenwich is open for Christmas 2020

London’s only outdoor ice rink has finally opened and it is bigger and more festive than last year!

Set against the striking backdrop of the Queen’s House, visitors will have the opportunity to skate in the beautiful surrounds of a UNESCO World Heritage site and take in views of the city.

New measures have been introduced this year to make sure that everybody can enjoy the ice rink safely. There will be hygiene standards fit for royalty, with enhanced cleaning regimes, hand washing sanitation facilities, temperature checks, one way systems and screens to separate people changing shoes for skates. Meanwhile staggered skate sessions will ensure fewer people on the ice at any one time.

If you want to make a day of it, there is so much more to see and do – from visiting the award-winning Cutty Sark, seeing the iconic Armada portrait in the Queen’s House, learning about the origins of time at the Royal Observatory and exploring the collection at the National Maritime Museum. The beautiful Greenwich market is only two minutes away for Christmas shopping and Greenwich Theatre has live shows this December. With easy transport links, Greenwich is just eight minutes from London Bridge, or arrive by boat along the River Thames.

The Ice rink is open until 10th of January and prices for a skating session from: Child: £7.25, Adult: £14.50, U25/student: £9.00. Skate aids are available for £5 but must be prebooked.

Sessions will be running at limited capacity to follow government guidelines, so advanced booking is recommended. For more information, full Ts&Cs (including added COVID-19 precautions) and to buy tickets, visit
