Ice Skating at Somerset House with Fortnum & Mason

It’s the last day of November which means that as of tomorrow Christmas is here. Well almost, however, brace yourselves for a bunch of Christmas inspired posts as I can’t hold my excitement any longer. That’s exactly how I felt when I got invited to Ice Skating at Somerset House with Fortnum & Mason. For those of you lovelies who don’t know the Summerset House has the most amazing Ice Rink in the whole of London that is not only set in such convenient central location but is also so beautiful and festive.

If you are like me and not an experienced ice skater fear not as there is so much to do to get your festive spirits up. If you are up for a little Christmas shopping then Fortnum & Mason Christmas Arcade has you covered or if you prefer a little more of are relaxed outing then The Fortnum’s Lodge offers amazing winter inspired dishes and cocktails, champagne and the most delicious hot chocolate.

We had the seasonal treats at the Fortnum’s Lodge including their delicious Smoked Salmon and Bearil Caviar Blinis, Cheese Fondue and Reblochon Tartiflette served with mixed salad and new potatoes. We washed it down nicely with the most delicious Cherry Chocolate and Bees Knees cocktails.
The Fortnum’s Lodge is open until late and it’s a perfect space to bring either your family or friends for a fun festive day/night out Ice skating and dining. I also thought that this is a perfect spot for a date so guys if you are looking to impress a girl then you can’t go wrong with a little Ice Skating and delicious food at Fortnum’s Lodge.
