As of 2nd November, a new rooftop destination, will be launching at the Tobacco Dock in Wapping.
Skylight will offer some of the best views in London, the only rooftop skating rink, seasonal drinks, fondue and street food, cutting edge DJs, and ice hockey shooting – sounds amazing right? We are predicting… Hyde Park’s Winder Wonderland, meets The National History Museum Ice Skating, meets Peckham’s Bussey Building’s rooftop cinema. What a mix, we can’t wait!
The new neon-lit winter playground is reasonably priced, with visitors who fancy a quick skate can take to the ice for £10. Tickets sold onsite only and not available in advance. Skaters will have a maximum of 45 minutes on the real ice surface, which to be honest is more than enough time! They can also try Skylight’s ice hockey penalty shooting game on the lower floor, at just £3 for 10 shots, with exciting offers and prizes to be won. There will be a number of indoor and outdoor heated seating areas across the three levels of the venue, all available to book for private parties of all sizes.
New to Skylight for winter is a cosy, fully enclosed bar on the lower level and a heated purpose-built lounge marquee on the raised deck, overlooking the ice and the city skyline, the perfect spot to grab a blanket and cuddle up with a cocktail With bars on every level, Skylight will offer signature wintry tipples such as mulled wine and mulled cider – delicious spiced drinks to warm the spirit after a hard day at work or a heavy Christmas shopping spree. The bars will also stock wines, spirits, and ciders and beers including Coors Light, Blue Moon, Wolf Rock and Rekorderlig.
Open until 11pm from Thursday to Sunday, with free entry and plenty to see and do, Skylight is the perfect hangout for the winter months, from lazy lunches or family afternoons, to post work drinks and starlit rooftop parties. Thursday & Friday 5pm – 11pm, Saturday & Sunday – 12pm – 11pm Christmas Day – Closed, Boxing Day – Closed.
