Yes, make the most of your visit to Canary Wharf by joining us at The Grandstand Bar, which has been transformed into an alpine-themed ‘apre-ski bar’ the perfect location for your pre or post skate beverages. Warm up with an indulgent hot chocolate, or sip an ice cold beer & sample wines from around the world. I’ts the perfect spot to warm up or cool down after your ice skating experience, or secure your position in the best spectators spot in the Wharf.

What happens in bad weather?

There’s little chance of general bad weather cancelling play with our magnificent roof, lit up by the glow of our magnificent lighting display and our shimmering giant mirror ball, so come rain or shine, the British weather won’t stop this year’s fun winter day out. We want you to be able to enjoy your skate in all weather conditions; the rink is covered to enable this; however, in extreme weather conditions, we may have to close for safety reasons.
