The outdoor ice rink is open to everyone, from beginners to experts, with adorable pushable penguins for less confident children.
Last year we went during a normal school day and were lucky enough to have the ice to ourselves, an unheard of luxury on the rest of London’s pop up rinks, but this year the secret is out and pre-booking is probably a good idea, especially at busy times. Skating starts every hour on the hour and lasts for 45 minutes. If you’re planning on using a locker you will need to bring £2 coin.
The 600sqm ice rink sits next to the Wembley Stadium arch, next to the London Designer Outlet is open every day until 3rd January 2016 except Christmas Day
There’s also a weekend food marketand a couple of vintage family fairground rides. There’s an array of street food, with the Alpine Cabin bar open every day serving mulled wine, and other alcoholic drinks as well as the usual tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The man at the creperie stall was utterly delightful and if we go back we will definitely be buying crepes and not just a drink from him.
Wembley Park Boulevard, opposite London Designer Outlet, HA9 0FD.
