Ice Skating

The open air ice rink provides the perfect place for some winter skating!

The Ice Rink has now closed for the season.

Welcome to the UK’s largest outdoor ice rink! Grab your skates and come and join us on the ice, set around Hyde Park’s Victorian bandstand under a canopy of sparkling lights.

Kick-off the winter season with some festive skating, open from 10:00am – 10:00pm daily. Stretch out and practice your skating moves during a crisp, early morning skate; enjoy the afternoon sun as it glistens on the ice; soak up the romantic atmosphere at twilight, or skate after dark under the stars.

Ideal for all ages and abilities, it’s a great family activity which the kids will love, whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to improve your skills on the ice!

Live music from the bandstand provides the perfect atmosphere while you skate. Or if skating’s not your thing, enjoy a hot chocolate or festive drink from the spectator’s platform.

If you’re more Bambi on ice than international ice star, book an Ice Guide to assist you during your session.

Sky Cinema will be the ultimate home of Christmas this year, with a new premiere to discover every day and over 1,000 movies available to watch on demand. Alongside the biggest blockbusters like Avengers: Endgame, Mary Queen of Scots and Mary Poppins Returns, Sky Cinema will also see the return of Christmas classics like The Muppet Christmas CarolArthur Christmas and The Polar Express for all the family to enjoy: find out more.


Ice skating session times run every hour, on the hour, between 10:00 and 21:00. Each ice skating session will last 50 minutes.

Make sure you arrive 20 minutes before your booked session so you’ve got time to get your skates on at the skate hire.
