Hampton Court's 1040sq metre ice-rink is positioned on one side of the long drive that runs up to the front of Henry VIII's Tudor palace.

When it's finally time for a sit-down you can enjoy watching everyone whizz around the rink whilst enjoying a mug of piping hot chocolate in the little cafe alongside the rink.
