Nov 18,2013

London's outdoor ice rinks are some of the most magical and spectacular attractions you'll see this festive season. With fairy lights and Christmas trees set to the backdrop of London's stunning landmarks and institutions, a trip to an ice rink is a must, for the views alone. When visiting the capital to experience London's seasonal attractions, why not stay at one of Millennium & Copthorne's six London hotels, all situated in the fashionable districts of Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Mayfair?

Each hotel is located close to London underground stations and public transport links, offering convenient access to many of the ice rinks and the surrounding areas. With a selection of hotels, all offering luxurious accommodation and fantastic restaurants, a Millennium & Copthorne hotel is the perfect choice for a festive weekend break in London.

There is a variety of ice rinks across the city, offering a variety of packages to suit all ages and abilities. Arguably the most famous is the Natural History Museum's 1,000 m2 outdoor ice rink, which features a magnificent Christmas tree at its centre and also has a smaller rink for children.

Another highly popular festive attraction for both visitors and locals alike is the outdoor ice rink in the 18th century courtyard at Somerset House. The ice rink offers skating lessons for beginners and special Penguin Club sessions for children, as well as late-night skates and club nights with DJs on selected dates.

If you prefer something more glamorous, the Canary Wharf Ice Rink offers skaters a 1100m2 rink, complete with a rink-side bar and a glittering skate path through the trees, all surrounded by Canary Wharf's towering buildings and is open to the public until late February 2014.

If you are visiting the capital this festive season, Millennium & Copthorne's stylish hotels are perfectly located for your visit, close to many of London's top festive sights and attractions.
