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.

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.

Yes you can observe and not skate. There is a nice bar there and also an outside area where you can take photos and skate. They also sell waffles outside, which smell delicious. The venue is really nice.
