Ice skating at Somerset House

My favorite rink in London is open for the season!

For everyone living in, around, or near London or planning to visit during the next two months, I highly recommend the ice rink at Somerset House - which just opened! You can book tickets through the Somerset House website.

I'm a bit sad about missing out, having gone every year since I moved to the UK with the exception of 2009 (i.e. the year T was born). Last year, my company even had its Christmas party there...which was great except that my left foot kept cramping up and I had to stop every 10 minutes, take off the skate, and stretch it out. There's a separate section for the kiddoes with skating aids and a "skate lounge" with refreshments for non-skating tag alongs.

P.S.: Check out Vogue's feature on fashionable skaters seen at Somerset House.
