Canary Wharf Ice Rink Season Extended for Half Term

Eager skaters will be delighted to know that the much-loved Ice Rink Canary Wharf’s season has been extended for February half term. Now open until 23 February, everyone from school kids to busy parents and those who haven’t had a chance to make it to the rink yet, can still make the most of the opportunity to skate over the school break.

Featuring London’s only ‘skate path’ – a unique ice trail that leads skaters off around Canada Square Park’s iconic Big Blue sculpture by British designer Ron Arad and through a forest of twinkling fairy lit trees, the rink is one of London’s best and not to be missed this February.
