Skate in the magical atmosphere of the Natural History Museum’s open-air ice rink.

Nestled in front of the iconic South Kensington museum, the spectacular rink is surrounded by thousands of fairy lights and features a glittering 30ft (9m) Christmas tree.

Visit the museum’s alpine-style Café Bar, run by Benugo, for winter warmers, and watch the skaters glide on the ice from the cafe’s balcony.

The cafe is also playing host to a series of intimate and free acoustic performances from some of the UK's best emerging talent.
