    Skate at Somerset House

    It’s your last chance to make shapes on the ice in the Somerset House courtyard. Pop along down to The Strand for the final chunk of icy goodness, and round it off with the hot chocolate on the riverside after. Guaranteed grins all round.

    Hogwarts in the Snow

    Experience the magical Harry Potter world, under a blanket of snow. Enjoy the festive makeover of everyone’s favourite boy wizard and stomp down Diagon Alley peeking into every little shop. Mischief managed, as they say.
