From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Ice at the Palace, Hampton Court
01 December, 2012 - 01 January, 2013
Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey
For the seventh year running you can skate in one of London's
most romantic locations. Hampton Court is one of the finest palaces
in Europe, built for Cardinal Wolsey on the banks of the Thames.
With this magnificent Tudor backdrop, the ice rink is reminiscent
of medieval frost fairs.
The temporary rink is located in front of the West Facade of the palace. For the duration of the skating season the Ice Rink café, located alongside the rink, will be serving festive snacks and warming drinks.
The rink is open until 10pm, so you will be able to enjoy the experience of skating against the backdrop of a floodlit palace. What could be better?
