UK Canal boat holidays


Ice skating this Christmas time is an ideal family day out and the perfect way to spend a day whilst on a Canal Boat Holiday.

Thankfully the temperature rarely falls low enough to provide us with natural skating rink but the UK does have a brilliant selection of artificial arenas some of which are especially created just for the Christmas period.

Situated in the magnificent Fountain Court, the backdrop of Somerset House, in London makes for one of Britain’s finest ice skating locations.

Special events include early morning sessions and DJ nights and Teatime afternoon skating sessions, complete with a free hot drink.

The city of London can be reached on a Canal Boat Holiday from Aldermaston marina.

Head for Bath from Hilperton to the brand new open aired ice ink which is located beneath the historic Royal Crescent.

After dark it is beautifully lit up and there is a side cafe for spectators and skaters, using local Bath companies for mulled cider and wine and yuletide snacks and treats.

Book a Canal Boat Holiday from Falkirk and cruise in your Canal Boat to Edinburgh’s ice rink in East Princes Street Gardens.

This is one of the most popular winter attractions in Scotland with festive food and drinks on offer.
