Apart from the palace itself and wondering if Henry VIIIth and Anne Boleyn frolicked on the ice hereabouts, perhaps the main attraction of Hampton Court
over its rivals is the river, which you can see as long as you stay on your feet.
If you can’t, they’ve kindly sorted out a cafe right by the rink from where you can watch your crowd have fun and/or give them the evil eye so they collapse in a heap, too.
Hampton Court Ice Rink is open from 28 November until 10 January 2010. Tickets available here
