What to expect

Hailed as one of the capital’s favourite winter experiences, Skate at Somerset House heralds the start of the festive period with unrivalled skating, contemporary music, the perfect gift selection from Hotel Chocolat, and delicious food and drink. The magnificent ice rink transforms the neoclassical courtyard into the essential winter destination, complete with a glorious 40ft Christmas tree, with specially curated decorations from Moët & Chandon, providing perfect picture moments.

From skating lessons with Skate School, to the ultimate nightlife sets from trailblazing DJs on rink-side decks at Skate Lates with UNIQLO, there is something for everyone across the Skate season. Gourmet dining also returns at Chalet Barragiste with Jimmy Garcia, providing the perfect post-skate treat at the pop-up alpine restaurant. Further treats off the ice can be enjoyed at the Skate Lounge by Moët & Chandon, where indulgent champagne and cocktails await.
