view web site ›'s insider take:

Somerset House isn't principally a skating rink—it's the home of an important art-history faculty, the Courtauld Institute's art gallery, the Gilbert Collection of decorative arts, and the Hermitage Rooms, which contain treasures from St. Petersburg. But the skating rink that appears, scenically, in the Courtyard during December and January has become one of London's favorite fun days out—right by the Thames in the West End. (Open daily late November through January, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.)

The ice-rink craze during the festive period continues to grow. Some other favorites include:
Kew Gardens Ice Rink ( London's biggest, overlooking the gardens of the Victorian Temperate glasshouse.

Tower of London Ice Rink ( Situated in the dry moat beneath the castle's outer wall.

Hampstead Heath Ice Rink ( Held at Parliament Hill Fields, great for open views.
