Skylight Tobacco Dock


Skylight is London's most imaginative rooftop venue. Opened in 2017 by Meanwhile Events Ltd. Skylight has been bringing its Urban Lawn Club Summer vibes to London ever since. Skylight is open for most of the year and features Europe's only real rooftop ice rink.  

Skylight has 12,500 square feet of outdoor space, which makes it the perfect destination for large groups who want to celebrate outdoors. The venue also has a full indoor floor to deal with anything the UK climate can throw at them.  

In the winter Skylight's sunny terraces will be transformed into an Autumnal haven of warm igloo-bubbles, designed to keep out the cold and keep people safe as they enjoy the stunning views and unique atmosphere of this hugely popular rooftop destination venue. 18 igloo-bubbles will be placed across the top two levels, allowing groups of up to six people to enjoy delicious cocktails, sharing platters and street food, having fun outside with their friends while knowing that they are protected from others.

Europe’s only real rooftop ice rink will be returning to Skylight Tobacco Dock for the first time since 2019 on 5th November. It’s time to lace up your skates and spin against limitless skies. Ice skating can only be booked on the day and a table or igloo reservation is highly recommended.

Skylight is also available for table bookings on its indoor level as well as its covered heated area under the main pergola.

Open to the public from Thursday to Sundays and available any day for large corporate hire.
