OW Ice Skating

2.30 pm, Somerset House

Come and join us at what has been billed by the Evening Standard as ‘London’s favourite outdoor ice rink’ and The Sunday Times as ‘The coolest rink of all’. The grand courtyard at Somerset House provides this 900-metre square ice rink with one of the most impressive skating backdrops in town. We will be returning to Somerset House for our annual Christmas gathering for those OWs and their families who are free to join us. The plan is to take over the ice for a festive skate followed by refreshments nearby.
