Ice, Ice Baby

Bloody hell... has London gone ice skating mad?!
There are plenty of rinks here in London already – the indoor ones in Streatham, Finsbury Park and Romford, and the seasonal outdoor ones that have been about for years at Somerset House and Broadgate – but it feels like very other day I hear about yet another rink opening for the Christmas season. Have we gone ice skating mad?!
I say 'we' but I haven't attempted to skate for over 30 years. It wasn't a good night; I wasn't very good at it, my friend had her hand cut by another skater's blade when she fell over, and someone went home with my brand new wedges such that I had to go home sad and shoeless. Now I am dare try to ice skate in case I put my back out!
But if sliding about on slippy things is your kind of thing, here's a fairly comprehensive list of where to do it.
Top row: Greenwich, Queensway, Tower of London, (Highgate)
Second row: Somerset House, Natural History Museum, (Regents Canal, Commercial Road), Hyde Park
