Ice Space

London likes ice. We're really big on ice skating (even before all those slebs got involved) and we're quite fond of our new ice bar so why not a whole Ice Space (beware: wanky, slow Flash site).

Ice Space, which is due to appear on the banks of the Thames this May, will basically be a lesure complex made out of ice, including an outdoorskating rink, restaurant and a bar. The structure will be 70ft tall and 300ft long and will be able to hold up to 500 people.

The location for the Ice Space is the derelict coach park site next to Tower Bridge and the Assembly building (does Ken fancy himself as a bit of a Christopher Dean do you think?).

The good news is that the planning permission has already been granted so it's unlikely that the Ice Space will go the same way as the ill-fated South Bank beach of Summer 2005.

Tickets for Ice Space will be available from 1 April. The venue will be launched on 1 May and close at the end of June (when it will melt presumably).
