Temperatures Forecast to Drop to -5 Degrees Celsius in London This Summer

LONDON, April 3/PRNewswire/ — Tickets go on sale today for IceSpace, the world’s largest attraction made of ice (outside arctic climate), opening to the public on May 1 in London.

IceSpace, this summer’s coolest visitor attraction, is being built next to Tower Bridge on the south bank of the River Thames.

It will take over a month to build the 300ft long and 70ft high structure which will weigh more than 200 tonnes, equivalent to 200,000 litres of water. Everything will be created by the world’s leading ice sculptors on a scale never seen outside frozen climates and the Arctic Circle including an outdoor ice rink.

IceSpace will have ambient areas and chilled areas of -3 to -5 degrees Celsius.

The experience is expected to attract 300 visitors through its doors every hour; it will also hold up to 500 people for parties and evening events.

On entering the IceSpace Projection Pod, visitors will be greeted with an audio visual presentation in the 70ft high Stratosphere, before collecting specially designed coats from the cloakroom areas to enter a world made of ice; from ice chairs to chandeliers.

In the Ice Art Gallery visitors will be able to admire contemporary ice creations by leading artists, combined with state of the art lighting. There will also be live themed performances by mime artists and contortionists.

At the far end of the gallery will be a large stage where visitors will be able to watch exciting activities and displays including live ice sculpting.

Visitors can even sit down to enjoy food and drink in the lounge area which includes a bar, or step outside to a Smoothie Bar and ‘Chill ‘n’ Grill’. They will also be able to watch ice performances and displays on the outdoor ice rink and extreme sports displays on specific dates.
