Nothing says winter like ice skating, and what better backdrop to your stumbles and slides than the stunning Somerset House. Held in partnership with Switzerland Tourism for 2023, it will have distinctly Swiss vibes; for example, Sunday Skate will have sessions hosted by partners from different regions including Bern, Lucerne and Valais, with local delicacies available in pop-up Alpine restaurant ‘Chalet Suisse’ by Jimmy Garcia.
Skate Lates are special night sessions with DJs curated by Rock Angel – see their website for who’s on the decks. Off the ice, there is a Shelter boutique of vintage clothing brought to you by HSBC, plus wine and cocktails in the Skate Lounge courtesy of Whispering Angel.
