Tobacco Dock Rooftop



Skylight Rooftop, Tobacco Dock London.


Located at the heart of London’s thriving enterprise zone, Tobacco Dock is a huge, Grade I listed building originally constructed in the early 1800s. It is now regularly used for large corporate and commercial events.

For the past two years, Icescape have been hired to install a festive temporary ice rink and is Europe’s only real rooftop ice rink!


The ice rink and chilling system had to be carefully craned on to the rooftop and the install took less than a week to complete. Icescape supplied over 100 pairs of rental skates and skate aids were included for younger skaters.

The rink was open to the public for skating for just over 12 weeks. Customers were able to enjoy their skating experience against the incredible backdrop of the capital’s city skyline. This unique ice rink was surrounded by tables, igloos and huts clear igloos for friends and family to relax and have a drink after their skate.

Full ice rink management training was provided to give the client the knowledge and understanding needed to maintain and run a successful ice rink.
