If you hadn’t guessed, we love this time of year! This morning, there’s a real chill in the air, but the lovely winter sunshine is making us wish we were outside enjoying the city at Christmas.

One of our favourite things to do when the weather turns crisp-cold is to head out and play on one of London’s fantastic ice rinks. We’re not the greatest skaters in the world, but practice makes perfect!
