An english tradition

It's an English tradition. Between November and January you can go skating on an artificial track installed inside Somerset House in London. It's a few steps from the St. Paul's Cathedral in the old district of London and is a lovely home. The price is expensive, £ 10.50 by day and £12.50 at night (from 5:30 in the afternoon, as it's already dark). First you have to leave your belongings in a locker, then you get the skates, entry is valid only for 1 hour but it's more than enough. When we went it was the 1st day they opened so there many people, but I imagine that during the season there will be less. They play music and you have to skate in the same direction as everyone else. In the center are "marshals" who see that nobody falls or does things they shouldn't. There's another rink in Hyde Park but this is beautiful, with its towering Christmas tree decorated with skates. A place to take your girlfriend on a romantic evening!

This is an English tradition. Between November and January, you can go skating on an artificial track installed in the courtyard of Somerset House in London. It is located a few steps from St. Paul's Cathedral in the old district of London, and it is a great historical monument. The price of skating is not given, it costs 10.50 pounds if you go during the day and 12.50 at night, that is to say from 17.30, as it was already dark. First his business has allowed the set, and also pay a part, then we'll take the shoes, knowing that the input is only for an hour but it's good enough. Those of the pre-session and our group goes out .. When there was it was the first opening day and there was a lot of people but I imagine that during the fall season ca. They put the music and patina anticlockwise, supervised by Marshalls, the cowboys of the snow, which verify that nobody gets hurt. There is a small track next to the children's learning. And another in London's Hyde Park, but it is magical, with its large Christmas tree decorated with shoes.

C’est une tradition anglaise. Entre le mois de novembre et de janvier, on peut aller patiner sur une piste artificielle installée dans la cour de la Somerset House de Londres. Elle se trouve a quelques pas de la cathédrale Saint Paul, dans le vieux quartier de Londres, et c’est un monument historique superbe. Le prix du patinage n’est pas donné, ca coute 10.50 livres si on y va de jour et 12.50 de nuit, c’est a dire a partir de 17h30, car il fait déjà nuit.
Premièrement on laisse ses affaires a la consigne, également payante et a part, puis on va prendre les patins, sachant que l’entrée vaut seulement pour une heure mais c’est bien suffisant.
Tous ceux de la session d’avant sortent puis notre groupe rentre.. Quand on y a été c’était les premiers jours d’ouverture et il y avait beaucoup de monde mais j’imagine qu’au cours de la saison ca diminuera. Ils mettent de la musique et on patine dans le sens inverse des aiguilles d’une montre, encadrés par des Marshalls, les cow boys des neiges, qui vérifient que personne ne se fait mal.
Il y a une petite piste a coté pour l’apprentissage des enfants. Et une autre dans le Hyde Park de Londres, mais celle-ci est magique, avec son grand arbre de Noel décorés de patins.
