Skylight RooftopFrom Thursday 31st October 2019, Skylight Rooftop gets a winter makeover with cosy igloos and huts, warming cocktails and a real-ice rooftop ice rink on top of Tobacco Dock. The winter season opens with Halloween On Ice and continues with special events including a tree decorating evening, festive singalong events and New Year's Eve celebrations before the new year brings Burns Night and Australia Day. Set on the top three levels of a former car park in Wapping, the 600 capacity Skylight has multiple bars, indoor and outdoor seating areas, private booths, big screens and two street food stalls, all set against some of the finest views in the city - you can see The Shard, The Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie from here. Grab a seat on the upper level for prime views over some of London's most famous buildings.
