Natural History Museum Ice Rink

An assortment of food and drink from the Cafe Bar

Enjoy a well-earned snack or a meal after skating, or simply relax, soak up the atmosphere and watch skaters from the viewing platform with a bird's-eye view of the action.

The Café Bar offers tasty meals, snacks and refreshments, including hot drinks and a range of wines, beers and soft drinks. The Café Bar is open daily until the Ice Rink closes and welcomes non-skaters.

Make it an essential stop during your visit to meet friends and warm up with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and mulled wine.

We sometimes need to close the Café Bar for private functions, so when you are planning your visit please check the News and events page for any closures.

To plan your own party or event at the Ice Rink, visit the Parties and private events page or contact for more details.
