One of the best things about winter in London is ice skating and the Natural History Museum ice rink is one of our favourites. The ice rink is located next to the museum creating a picturesque backdrop. There’s a giant Christmas tree in the middle of the main ice rink and twinkling lights on the surrounding trees – perfect for selfies and Facebook pics.

Everyone is welcome including absolute beginners. Staff accompany and quickly help anyone that’s a bit wobbly or needs tips. Children also have their own area attached to the main 1,000 metre ice rink. Cute little penguins are available to hire for children that need extra support (not real penguins of course!).

Doors: check the website

Shedding a positive light on extinction, this temporary exhibition suggests that though millions of species have become extinct over the centuries, their demise has actually made space for a huge diversity of life forms that have taken their place. The role of extinction in the evolution of life is explored through exhibits of past species, as well as scientific information on today’s endangered animals and the conversation initiatives that aim to support them.
