Quick Review: I've been skating here a few times and although it's quite a small rink it's a great location, right in front of the London Eye. There's no cloakroom but you can leave a small bag with your shoes when collecting skates. There are 'double blade overshoes' available for the youngest skaters. There are usually two Ice Marshalls on the rink who are great at giving tips and picking us up when needed.

For younger skaters there are orange plastic seals for them to either ride on or hold onto and push. My daughter enjoys both options but I have to say I actually prefer her riding the seal so I could push as I let go of the side of the rink for the first time! There's no extra charge for the seals and they are given to young skaters on a first-come-first-served basis. The Ice Marshalls try to ensure all children get to use a seal, if they'd like to. I found it a really fun atmosphere here and look forward to coming back next year.
