Hampton Court Ice Rink

KidRated’s Hampton Court Ice Rink Top Tips:

Against the majestic setting of Hampton Court Palace, the Hampton Court ice rink invites visitors to come and skate during the winter months. Ice guides are available for groups and individuals who wish to be escorted onto the ice.


Those aiming to develop their skating skills can also have one-on-one or group lessons, which will have kids skating like a pro in no time! As the sun sets, skaters can glide on glistening ice under the starlight, illuminated by the palace, enhancing the ice rink’s magical feel.


If Hampton Court is a little far for you why not check out the ice rinks at the Natural History Museum or Somerset House? Further afield, most big cities have outside rinks at some point during winter, so keep your eyes peeled.


Hampton Court Ice Rink has disabled access.

About London Laura Porter

  • No penguin skating aids available, sadly.
  • The toilets are usually a bit far away so go before putting skates on.
  • Lovely Christmassy feel here and the Palace looks grand when lit up in the evening.
  • Don’t forget to grab a hot chocolate from the rink-side cafe afterwards!
  • You can find loads more information by Laura Porter at

      The Arena website has failed several times now to accept my reservation. A phone call to the rink says they are open now to take calls but gives me a message and then directs me to email them. Maddening.
