Christmas Ice Rinks Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit? 3 0 3

This 1200sq metre rink has a spectacular backdrop, sitting in the shadow of the skyscrapers at Canada Square.

It has a roof on top and an interesting little feature that sets it apart from all the other rinks in London — an atmospheric skate path around the side that allows you to leave the main rink and glide past the fir trees and fairy lights that decorate the perimeter.

You'll also find a rinkside bar and viewing terrace (for those of you who'd rather keep your feet firmly on solid ground!).
