LED Ice Skating At Canary Wharf
From now until 25th February, the Canary Wharf ice rink is ready and waiting for you to go skating on their new LED ice rink. In Canada Square Park the ice-rink is the first of its kind in London and has more than 8km of LED lights laid beneath the ice and positioned throughout the venue. We can only imagine the fun once the music starts! The ice rink is complemented by the vibrant LUMINOCITY Bar, in partnership with 7Up Free, where skaters and non-skaters alike can enjoy a wide array of delicious food and beverages throughout the season. Skaters get 15 minutes more per session than most ice rinks in London so it’s definitely worth checking out. More info and tickets at www.icerinkcanarywharf.co.uk.
