The grand 18th-century courtyard that is home to Somerset House ice rink provides a stunning location for a skating session this winter – and no matter how unimpressive your skills a trip to this 900-square-metre outdoor rink will look the very definition of festive fun on Instagram. There are lots of tempting extras too: the Fortnum’s Lodge will offer champagne, afternoon tea and even private dining; Club Nights will feature DJs from Rough Trade Records, Green Man Festival and a “sober morning rave” from Morning Gloryville. The Fortnum’s Lodge menu features winter classics like Welsh rarebit and smoked salmon blinis, or a sharing fondue for two, plus champagne, mulled wine and cocktails. The Christmas Arcade will bring posh shopping from Fortnum & Mason, and guests can admire the skaters with drink in hand at the Botanical Bar, both of which can be accessed without a ticket.
