This year, Ice Rink Canary Wharf is returning bigger and brighter than ever, illuminating Canada Square Park for 16 weeks from 4 November 2016 through to 25 February 2017. LUMINOCITY at Ice Rink Canary Wharf is the first of its kind in London. With more than 8 km of LED lights laid beneath the ice and positioned throughout the venue, visitors will be amazed by the spectacle of lights set to music. LUMINOCITY will showcase more than 16 million different colours every session and swathe skaters in an abundance of magical light to create a truly immersive skating experience. The ice rink will also be fully covered by a clear roof to guarantee skating sessions whatever the weather. Not just a festive activity, LUMINOCITY at Ice Rink Canary Wharf will host activities throughout the year, including ice hockey, curling and speed skating. It's also the perfect venue for team-building days, launch events, children's parties, ice skating lessons and more. The ice rink is complemented by a vibrant bar offering delicious beverages and bar snacks throughout the season. For those less stable on the ice, the venue also has a large heated outdoor viewing terrace from which to admire the icy action. Ticket prices start from £9.95.

Really well organised, loved the light show as you skated. Loved the availability of polar bears which helped my niece to gain confidence

Having missed the opportunity to ice skate over Christmas I was delighted to find that this rink was still open in February half term. We had a wonderful time. Great music and lights plus not too busy. I would thoroughly recommend

Went there with my friends, it wasn't too bad. Student tickets are cheaper if you buy it there and show your student ID.

Big nice and under roof so never mind it's raining or not. I'll back. Just a one minus - all the time you must go in one direction.

Went there on a Sunday afternoon with my dad and 70 year old grandad (he's very active for his age , lol), and it was nice and quiet, plenty of room to glide about and loved the luminous atmosphere of both the rink and the bar as well. Apart from the fact, I fell on my tailbone 10 minutes towards... More

We went there on a sunday morning by booking tickets on the internet before (but you can totally buy it on the spot). There were a lot of family with children but the place was not too crowded. The ice rink is quite large and well maintained. We had great fun with my fiancé even if we are not really... More

We have been to skate here many years and have enjoyed this year a lot. The lights were great and the music was much better than it has been. Originally it was a rectangle rink and for the last few years it has been an odd shape with a small tunnel near the entrance which always caused a bottleneck of... More

I have been taking late lunches and going skating during the weekdays I am working in Canary Wharf since the ice-rink was as it is close to my office and I got some 50% off vouchers. Sometimes it is busy and sometimes I have a lot of personal space to complete laps and get a good rhythm going. I do... More
