Get your skates at Skylight

Christmas is off to an early start over in East London, where folks are already getting into the festive spirit, with food, drink and an ice rink on offer.

It’s never too early to start the festive skating season. Well, not according to the guys at Skylight, the rooftop destination at Tobacco Dock, Wapping.

Following on from a successful summer season, which included lawn bowls, croquet and pétanque – and keeping with the seasonal theme – Skylight is this winter hosting a festive extravaganza, including ice hockey shooting, street food, fondue, boozy refreshments and, of course, ice skating.

Add to this the fabulous view of the City of London, and you’ve got the makings of a pretty stellar night (or day, at the weekends) out.

Opening: Thursday–Friday 5pm–11pm; Saturday–Sunday Noon–11pm
Skating costs £10
