Somerset House has released dates for corporate hire of its ice rink during its Skate at Somerset House season this Christmas.

Set in the stately surroundings of Somerset House’s neo-classical courtyard, the ice rink offers one of the most spectacular skating backdrops. With lively late-night entertainment from top DJs, a luxury shopping experience from British boutique brands, festive-filled evenings and Michelin-starred munchies from resident chef Tom Aikens alongside the skating, Skate at Somerset House has become one of the capital’s favourite Christmas outings.

Event organisers hosting Christmas parties, drinks receptions, lunches and dinners at Somerset House will be invited to book an exclusive hour on the ice for their guests from 7 November until 4 January. Spaces available in conjunction with the ice rink include the Portico Rooms, The Navy Board Rooms or the Seaman’s Hall, where guests will have the opportunity to enjoy food and drinks overlooking the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court before taking to the ice.

Emma Barrow, Head of Events at Somerset House, comments: “The ice rink has become one of the most popular Christmas attractions in London and we are looking forward to welcoming corporates to Skate at Somerset House this festive season. We are seeing an increasing number of event organisers wishing to incorporate current exhibitions and fixtures such as the ice rink into their event, so we are hoping that this new package will meet that demand.”

Dates for corporate hire of the ice rink are subject to availability and can be booked until July. Each package is quoted on a bespoke basis.
