Embrace the festive cheer with an enchanting ice skating experience at Glide, located at Battersea Power Station. The ice rink, described as ‘something special’ by reporter Amy Clarke, offers a unique setting for a winter wonderland adventure.
Set against the backdrop of the iconic Battersea Power Station, the rink presents an oddly shaped course with a majestic Christmas tree at its center. The sizeable rink, coupled with the mesmerizing ambiance of the glowing power station, creates a magical atmosphere for skaters.
Visiting at night amplifies the charm, as the combination of twinkling lights, festive music, and the stunning city skyline crafts an unforgettable experience. It’s an environment that can transport visitors into the heart of a “beautiful, slightly cheesy Christmas rom-com.”
Adding to the allure is an atmospheric bar equipped with cozy outdoor pods, reminiscent of those along the Thames but with a homely touch. These pods are adorned with festive decorations and equipped with heaters, offering a warm retreat post-skating. Enjoying a drink here, accompanied by friends and live music, can round off the skating experience perfectly.
The site also features fairground rides, including an old-fashioned Ferris wheel and a merry-go-round, appealing to the young and the young at heart. The bar area, showcased in stunning images by Amy Clarke, provides an ideal setting for a winter date night or a fun outing for families. Little ones can find support with skating penguins, designed to help those less steady on their feet.
The staff at the rink are noted for being incredibly helpful, offering skating tips to beginners and a helping hand for those occasional falls.
For spectators or those preferring not to skate, ample space is available to watch and enjoy the festive scene. Additionally, a pop-up Jo Malone store is situated next to the rink, offering a range of special Christmas gifts.
Ticket prices for the rink are reasonable, with rates starting from £8 for children (aged 12 and under) and £12 for adults. Family tickets are also available for £36, with prices varying during peak times. The ticket price includes skate hire, making it a hassle-free experience for visitors.
Glide at Battersea Power Station is open seven days a week, from November 11 through to January 8, 2023, providing a long window for visitors to enjoy this festive delight.
