Take bored teens away from the TV and back to the glittering 80's for a spin on King's Cross new outdoor skate ring.

Free Wheeling

If you live in London, or you're just visiting the city in the school summer holidays, then restless teens and tweens will love the King's Cross pop-up skate rink.

Location:

Skate King's Cross is set under a weather-proof canopy just by the iconic Granary Building and is open until 6 September.

Activities:

While the evenings are dedicated to disco balls and DJs, during the day it’s a little more child-friendly. And you needn’t get your skates on too, as the rink has a 200-capacity viewing platform for you to keep an eye on things at arms length.

Food:

There’s American diner-style food such as shakes and burgers, as well as pop-up food stalls from the street food aficionados Lucky Chip, Yum Bun and Street Kitchen.  

More information: 

Child tickets are £5.50, adults are £14.30, while a family ticket (groups of four) is £7.70 for each person. To book, visit skatekingscross.com
