Price was ok for a 3/4 hour skating £13 ... the Penguin hire for £5 I thought was a little steep. The girls enjoyed it though

Don’t waste your money on this ridiculously busy soaking wet small ice rink, there are much better rinks to visit.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

I always book in advance as they are timed allocated slots, but there seemed to be a ticket office there although you May have to wait for a session that isn’t full. It’s 45 mins in the ice.
