The folks from Starbucks kindly invited my “family” to a complimentary 50 minutes of skating at the Ice Rink at the Natural History Museum. Kemey and I had a blast (Winston, our cat and only other member of this family, decided to sit this one out). Believe it or not, I only busted my butt once!
Supported by Starbucks, there’s a cafe above the rink with Red Cup coffee treats (I really Starbucks’ egg nog lattes – they’re something I treat myself to at least once a year), all sorts of sweet and savoury seasonal offerings including beer and wine and even an online photo booth for sharing your fun with your Facebook and Twitter friends. The cosy cafe has a terrific balcony above the rink that’s perfect for viewing the icy action below as well as all the twinkling Kensington Christmas lights.
The Natural History Museum is located at the corner of Cromwell Road and Exhibition Road, SW7 5BD, near the South Kensington Tube station. The Ice Rink is open everyday until 6 January. Tickets start at £9. To find out more and to purchase tickets visit:
