Ice walk

What: For the lazier ‘sportsman’, you can walk through the elaborate man-made Stalagmite Cave and Ice Castle in Hyde Park’s Magical Ice Kingdom.

Keep an eye out for ice-carved woodland creatures lurking in this visual treat and grab some Facebook-worthy snaps while you’re at it. Opens 5pm, Nov 23.

Where & when
: 10am-10pm, Nov 24-Jan 6. Hyde Park, W1K 7TY. £7.


Cold water swimming

What: “It’s cold, it’s bracing, it’s fucking freezing,” says bonkers group The Outdoor Swimming Society, which holds regular cold swims across the country.

It’s predicted the water will be between 0.1˚C and 6˚C on the day of their annual December Dip.

They say the experience “gets the blood pumping” and “skin tingling”. We say, “Ouch.”

Where & when: 11am-1pm, December 8, Parliament Hill Lido, NW5 1QR. Costs £15 per dipper.


Ice sculpting

What: Carving ice for 90 minutes with picks, chisels and drills is surprisingly sweaty work, but this extravagant activity is brilliant fun and you get to take your creation home with you – so make space in your freezer.

Where & when
: Various times. SW17 0BA. £75.
