Skate (Party, Workout, Hang Out) At Somerset House

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Skate at Somerset House presented by Tiffany & Co.

Somerset House is one of the most beautiful places you can ice skate this winter. Well-established as one of London's most popular and glamorous pop-up ice rinks, there's so much more than skating round in a circle to get to grips with this year.

Book for a club night, new this season, and you'll be going right round like a record baby, right round round round the ice rink to live DJ sets by Ministry of Sound, Lovebox, Snowbombing, Joey Negro and more.

Introducing the little ones to the ice? Under 8s can join Penguin Club which provides fun skate stabilisers in the shape of our favourite Antarctic feathered friends. There's also a series of free outdoor storytelling events beside the Christmas tree to further entrance the kids.

If you prefer not to hang on to the side for the whole of your session adults can get coaching too. Book for a course, or a single class and you might find yourself going backwards, doing mohawks and more! All the training is approved by Jayne Torvill herself.

After the indulgence of Christmas and New Year try the Big Ice Dance Lunchtime Workout. Take part in a 20 minute free warm up with members of English National Ballet (keeping in shape for their Strictly Gershwin season at The Coliseum) followed by an hour on the ice learning to perform a skate routine to the jaunty tune, Strike up the Band.

Four special Saturday afternoons are designated Teatime with Tiffany. The sparkly Skate sponsor lays on skate sessions with tea-dance music and live ice-dance displays, with a spot of champers for the grown-ups and free hot drinks after.

If you'd rather not swop your shoes for skate you can wander round the beautiful courtyard, taking in the pretty sight. Browse the Tiffany Shop, warm up in Tom's Skate Bar with mulled wine and other festive treats, or book dinner at Tom's Kitchen.

Skate at Somerset House begins on 22 November until 22 January. Tickets from £7.50..
