That figure skating dream can now come to pass at the Wapping rooftop, stay on trend at London’s first rooptop ice rink!

Social Fun and Games Club is renowned for their stellar hospitality, so it is no surprise that hosts will be on hand to deliver drinks direct to the lanes.. result!

If this wasn’t enough to get you skating down there before I could say Eskimo’s, guests can get now hire and enjoy 80’s inspired après-ski lodges for a sum of up to 8 people per igloo, whilst sipping hot cocktails. Step inside the nothing short of magical glassy rooftop igloos and stare in awe at the glistening skyline of London.
