London’s magical ice skating locations are the very picture of festive fun for the holiday season. No matter your skating skills, a trip to the South Bank to skate beneath the London Eye is sure delight.
Eyeskate is the open air run situated in the Jubilee Gardens, in the shadow of the London Eye.
The rink lies in the centre of London’s ‘Frostival’, a festive seasonal celebration featuring glorious ice sculptures, sparkling lights and live entertainment to brighten up winter. No need to book a flight on the Eye to skate the rink, but packages are offered for those who wish to do so. This year the Frost Guided Experience returns to the London Eye, transforming the Eye’s capsules to embody a frosty, wintery atmosphere. Visitors will hear the sounds of crackling ice and winds, smell familiar scents of Christmas, and see twinkling lights on icy structures. Expert guides will be on hand to provide insight on London’s frosty views, and packages including winter cocktails and Champagne are available to complete the experience on London’s most iconic landmark. The festival will run throughout the whole month of December, until January 4th, (excluding Christmas Day).
