If you are staying in London due to relocation or just spending time with the family over the next few weeks, there is so much to do in the run up to Christmas. There is no better place to be than in one of our luxury serviced apartments at Craven House. Everything is on our doorstep!
If you are lucky enough to be staying with us at Craven House, Hampton Court, a great highlight for this time of year is the Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink. The Ice Rink is now open until 3 January 2016. The Ice Bar provides a welcomed place to warm up after your skate, serving winter drinks and festive snacks and short walk from Craven House. A winner all round.
If you prefer to head into London, which is only 30 mins by train from Craven House, then celebrate in style at London’s most beautiful ice rink at Somerset House (open from 18 November to 10 January 2016).
