Tired of the cold yet? No? Well head on down to the last weekend of ice skating at Canary Wharf.
The ice rink is closing on Sunday, February 20 – so get your skates on (quite literally) before it’s over for another year.
Learn to skate amongst the towers above on the 720-metre-square rink, or watch from the bar or viewing gallery.
The rink is open 9:45am-11pm on Saturday, and 9:45am-7:30pm on Sunday. Last entry to the rink is an hour before closing.
Tickets are £12 or £9 conecssions, and that includes the hire of the skates.
The ice rink is located at Canada Square Park.

The clocks have gone back and it’s getting darker (boooo). But there is one good thing about winter creeping up on us – Christmas is on the way.
Why is that good? Well because feel-good Christmas and winter things are popping up all over the place. Like the Ice Rink at the Natural History Museum.
The famous ice rink opens this weekend – Friday, November 5, to be exact – and will be open for your skating pleasure until early January next year.
If you fancy the idea, but have no idea how to skate, don’t worry – lessons are available from £30 a session. Otherwise, it’s £13 adults/£8.50 concessions for an hour of skating. Good news for students, too – on Mondays and Tuesdays you can get down for a session and drink at the bar for £8 (you need your student ID and the offer is running until December 7).
You need to book tickets – see here for more information.
The ice rink opens at 10am and closes at 10pm Monday -Friday, opening at 8:45 at the weekend.
