Prepare to be swept away by the seasonal atmosphere of Hampton Court Palace this Christmas 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. Enjoy a daytime skate, perhaps followed by a visit to the palace, or soak in the ambience of an evening session, when the historic Tudor gate is bathed in light.
Enjoy a hot drink or sweet treat while you soak up the festive atmosphere at the heated Ice Rink Café Bar. Everyone is welcome in this relaxing, festive spot, whether you're a skater or a spectator.
The Ice Rink Café Bar is open 10:30-21:30 from 22 November 2019 to 5 January 2020 (excluding Christmas Day).
We recommend that you arrive 30 minutes before your session to get ready to take to the ice.
