Where to skate

Hyde Park

In the summer we skate in Hyde Park on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6ish onwards, beginners welcome. In Winter time (once the clocks change), we meet up on Saturday, same location, from 11:30 am onwards.

See map below for precise location

Finsbury Park

The surface is a bit rough so soft wheels are essential.


Crystal Palace

We sometimes skate at Crystal Palace at weekends but only by prior arrangement by postings on the UK section of NCDSA


In the summer months on Friday evenings some people like to skate on the seafront down in Hove near Small Planet skate and Surf shop. Best check the UK section of NCDSA to confirm. Here’s a map of the area, X marks the shop:

Hillingdom Cycle Track

This is for special events only. The track has to be hired.

Ascot racecourse

The road itself comes off the main road and sweeps underneath the main road and racetrack. It does have gates, but the pathway one is open all the time and the road gate is open from about 8am-4pm. You just park on the downhill section going into the tunnel. IMPORTANT NOTE: If there is a race being held they use the road as access to get onto the heath so no cones around the race times on those days and of course Royal Ascot week is a complete no no. Race days are found here.

1. Longer Slalom road
2. Shorter steeper road
