For those who love ice-skating, wizarding world tours and exhibits, these are the things to see in London:

Somerset House, an 18th century courtyard with 900-metre-square rink, gives visitors a taste of traditional merrymaking. Somerset House is also hosting evenings of champagne and private dining. For anyone who wants to skate with the big Ferris wheel hovering over the rink, Eyeskate is a delight for people of all ages.
