Another skating rink that returns this year and which has the advantage of having a Tudor palace in the background. Undoubtedly atmospheric and completely different from the Canary Wharf rink for example. There are family or single tickets, but you must book to have a guaranteed place.
Ice Skating at Hampton Court, a genuine Tudor Palace
The Hampton Court Palace is part of the Tudor heritage and was built in 1514 to replace an older palace.
It was originally a lodge built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the 16th century, but was extended into a sumptuous residence by Henry VIII and his wife Anna Bolena between 1516 and the 1528.
