Prepare to be swept away by the seasonal atmosphere of Hampton Court Palace as the stunning ice rink returns for another year.

Join us to skate against a backdrop of one of the greatest palaces on earth – Henry VIII's historic home, Hampton Court Palace. The open-air ice rink epitomises the very best in festive fun.

Be transported to one of the country's most scenic skating settings, with spectacular views of the Thames-side Tudor palace.

Located in front of the palace, our stunning ice rink offers something for everyone, from novice to expert. Join us for a daytime session between 11:00 and 19:00 daily, when skate aids will be available to hire, or soak in the ambience of the palace bathed in light during an evening session.

The Great Hall, looking east.
The hall was constructed by King Henry VIII to replace a smaller and older hall on the same site. It had two functions. First to provide a great communal dining room where 600 members of the court could eat in two sittings, twice a day. And secondly, to provide a magnificent entrance to the state apartments that lay beyond.
