After visiting the Natural History Museum Ice Rink the other night, I planned to go back there to see how it looks like during the day. As expected, it was just as gorgeous!
I fell in love with it all over again. I guess the natural light makes its beauty stand out without the added aesthetics of the fairy lights surrounding the whole place. The beautiful architecture of Natural History Museum as a backdrop of this ice rink makes it gorgeous no matter what time of the day it is.
It was drizzling yesterday when I was there but that didn’t stop these skaters to enjoy the ice rink. It does look too slippery though but I saw that there’s an emergency kit and team inside ready to respond in case someone gets hurt. So that must be comforting to know.
The Cafe Bar which overlooks the ice rink is a place you can go to in case you’re feeling too cold with the weather we now have or hungry/thirsty. Do try their mulled wine.
It was really lovely, I haven’t seen the other ice rinks in London yet but I do think that the beauty of Natural History Museum Ice Rink will be quite hard to beat.
