Everyone can ice skate! – That’s the message being sent out from The Natural History Museum when they recently launched their annual festive attraction.

A season the Ice Rink outside London’s prestigious museum will offer a calmer session for people with disabilities and those in wheelchairs on 2nd January 2019.

Professional marshals will be available to give support and disability personal assistants will be on at no extra cost to accompany up to four skaters around the rink.

The session can hold up to 35 wheelchair users which are permitted on the rink during these times.

If you wish to eat before or after your Torvill and Dean skills there’s a lift to the Café Bar and viewing platform from the ground level.

Access to the Ice Rink can be made from the ramp next to the Museum entrance on Cromwell Road and the ramp situated on the corner of Exhibition Road and Cromwell Road.

Accessible toilets are located near the Ice Rink at the Museum entrance.

Assistance dogs can be left with the Ice Rink staff during your skate.

You can book a slot by calling the Accessible Bookings Team on +44 (0)80 0988 4440 for UK customers and 0044 161 637 2697 for overseas customers.

The accessible session takes place on 2nd January 2019 between 10am – 11am.
