Skating at Life


The perfect place for a spot of wintery fun with friends and family, skating at Life is a must on your winter check list!

Grab your mates and head down to Life where the ice rink is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. There's no need to book if you're visiting with fewer than 10 people, just turn up and pay on the day (excludes Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve).

Make a day of it by visiting our Science Centre while you’re here (separate prices apply) - see Natural History Museum exhibition Dino Jaws, experience the 4D Motion Ride, our amazing planetariumlive theatre shows and a range of exciting hands-on zones.

Fancy a skate on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve? See 'special skating events' below for more information.

Book your slot for Christmas Eve online. Booking is essential!
