Has anyone ice skated at Somerset House? My daughter loves to skate and we thought we might take advantage of one the evening skates. We are reluctant to purchase tickets ahead of time though, as skating in the rain would be a drag, considering this is not an unlikely prospect. We liked the idea of an evening skate as we are traveling in January and the early onset of evening has us seeking out additional ways of having fun after major tourist sites close. We will be pursuing pub crawls, late museum closings, but this seems different!
Yes. The rink and skates are rather better quality than most of the temporary ones and the location is nice. It gets busy, so you'll struggle to get a go if you don't book. Why worry about getting a bit wet? We're in the midst of a long dry spell at the moment (though it's lashing down at the moment, this is the first proper drop of rain in weeks), so the chances are you won't see much rain anyway.
