Historic Royal Palaces for Ice-skating

Historic Royal Palaces for Ice-skating  – Hampton Court Palace and The Tower of London Ice Rinks are back for another winter extravaganza.

Hampton Court Palace

20 November 2020 – 3 January 2021

Prepare to be swept away by the seasonal atmosphere of Hampton Court Palace this winter as the stunning ice rink returns this November for another year.

Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink, one of the highlights of the festive calendar, is back this winter with a host of exciting features to delight festive revellers at the Tudor Palace. 

Tickets are now on sale and this year will feature an even larger ice rink, giving skaters more room to enjoy the spectacular views of the enchanting riverside palace and former home of King Henry VIII.

New measures have been introduced to make sure that everybody can enjoy Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink safely – all comply with the Gold Standard for COVID-secure temporary ice rink attractions, which has been created by a consortium of industry experts. There will be hygiene standards fit for a king or queen, with enhanced cleaning regimes and hand washing sanitation facilities available. Meanwhile staggered skate sessions will ensure fewer people on the ice at any one time.

Skating is hungry work and revellers can satisfy their cravings at the Ice Rink Café and Bar, provided by Miss Polly’s, tucking into some hearty winter warming dishes, indulgent treats and a wide range of beverages. 

After taking a spin on the ice, visitors can make a whole day of it and discover 500 years of history inside the Palace, from the grand State Apartments to King Henry’s magnificent Great Hall and Tudor kitchens. 

Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink is open daily from 20 November 2020 to 3 January 2021. Closed Christmas Day.
