Prepare to be swept away by the seasonal atmosphere as the stunning ice rink opens to the public for its annual run. Skate against a backdrop of one of the greatest palaces on earth – Henry VIII’s historic home, Hampton Court Palace. The open-air ice rink epitomises the very best in festive fun.

With 500 years of history to discover at the palace, why not arrive early and explore all that Hampton Court has to offer, from the spectacular State Apartments to 65 acres of formal gardens and even a world-famous maze!

Booking online is simple, if you are choosing to visit the palace, gardens and maze too (for an extra charge) we would recommend you plan these for as late in the day as possible so you can enjoy the Ice Skating at night, the palace looks absolutely magical when lit up!

This beautiful Ice Skating Rink opens from 24th November 2017 until 7th January 2018 (with the exception of Christmas Day).

A ticket is just £14, this includes skate hire and 45 minutes skate time, there is a café there to enjoy afterwards too!

The students we provide accommodation for in Kingston can get to Hampton Court Palace in just 15 minutes on a bus, we will be encouraging them to do this sometime over the festive break if they get a chance too!
