Best of all is the ice rink itself. As well as a large arena for expert skaters to whiz about on, there's a channel of ice that runs through a glittering canopy of trees, which is perfect for novices as it offers a barrier to hold onto as you find your feet. It's also an exciting extra bit of ice to dart down if you're a seasoned skater. New this year is also a children's skating area, so your little ones can learn and have fun in a safer environment. Luckily the whole rink is protected from any potential British weather woes by a clear roof that won't distract from the skyscraper view.
For those Londoners who won't be travelling to Canada this Christmas season to skate on the largest ice rink in the world, family friendly fun can be found just around the Canada Wharf corner.
