Now in its 20th year, Skate at Somerset House with Fortnum & Mason returns, promising a spectacular season of celebration in the heart of London. Hailed as one of the capital’s favourite winter experiences, Skate at Somerset House heralds the start of the festive period with unrivalled skating, contemporary music, seasonal shopping, and delicious food and drink. The magnificent ice rink transforms the neoclassical courtyard into an exciting winter destination, complete with a glorious 40ft Christmas tree, and a multitude of special events and experiences from the major exhibition, 24/7.
From skating lessons with Skate School and Polar Bear Club, to the ultimate nightlife sets from trailblazing DJs on rink-side decks at Skate Lates, there is something for everyone across the Skate season. Skate at Somerset House partners with Fortnum & Mason for the sixth year, bringing a range of the renowned grocer’s luxury food, drinks and gifts to the Fortnum’s Christmas Arcade. Gourmet dining also returns at The Lodge, providing the perfect post-skate treat at the pop-up alpine restaurant. Further treats off the ice can be enjoyed at the Skate Lounge with Baileys, where indulgent Baileys Hot Chocolates and cocktails await.
