Our stunning Edmond J. Safra Fountain courtyard is the backdrop to London’s most beautiful ice rink, where you can skate day or night with family and friends. Skate Lates features an extra special series of music nights throughout the season - the perfect start to your weekend. Après-skate, treat yourself at Fortnum’s Lodge with one of our Skate Extras – all designed for two to share; relax and take in the spectacle rink-side with a drink or warming snack in the Skate Lounge.

The Festival of Christmas is back bigger and better than before with a new name - The Dickens Christmas Festival. Celebrate all things Charles Dickens with classic Christmas tales including A Christmas Carol, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, Oliver Twist and The Old Curiousity Shop. Feel the essence of these novels when you walk across snow-covered cobbles and authentic decoration from the period. Plus, watch the parade of the characters at the end of each day - back by popular demand!
As if lifted from one of Charles Dickens' books, enjoy wonderful stalls filled with artisan bakes and cakes, homemade crafts and vintage clothes that you'll absolutely love.
