Things to do this weekend
Skate at Somerset House (on now and until Sunday 10 January 2016) – The grand 18th-century courtyard that is home to Somerset House ice rink provides a stunning location for a skating session this winter – and no matter how unimpressive your skills a trip to this 900-square-metre outdoor rink will look the very definition of festive fun and good for taking photos too. There are lots of tempting extras too: the Fortnum’s Lodge will offer champagne, afternoon tea and even private dining; Club Nights will feature DJs from Ministry of Sound and Island Records. The Christmas Arcade will bring posh shopping from Fortnum & Mason, and guests can admire the skaters with drink in hand at the Botanical Bar, both of which can be accessed without a ticket.
Skate at the Tower of London (Friday 20 November until 3 January 2016). Located in the dry moat, the Tower of London ice rink offers a grand historical setting for seasonal skating sessions, along with views of London’s ancient fortress. As with fellow Historic Royal Palace Hampton Court, sessions last an hour and wheelchairs are welcome on the ice except during the last session of the day. Online booking is advised.
Rotherhithe’s Finnish and Norwegian Churches (Friday 20 until Sunday 22 November) at Albion Street, Rotherhithe. The churches provide the backdrop for this traditional array of stalls selling Scandinavian treats, decorations and gifts. Tuck into hearty dishes and sip a warming mug of Nordic glögg before saying hello-ho-ho to Father Christmas and meeting a friendly Moomin troll. There’ll also be musical performances all weekend to get you in the Christmas spirit.
And don’t forget the Christmas lights at Oxford Street and Regent Street are now on.
