Rollin' with the homies...

Yep, Clueless is on as I write this post and that line just seemed appropriate! After reading about Skate Kings Cross on Rosie and Joelle's blogs, I decided that we had to go play while we were in London. It just sounded like far too much fun to miss! So I booked tickets online (organisation is key people!) and we headed to the roller disco on our last night in the city.

The pop up skate rink is located right next to Kings Cross and tucked away down the side of Central Saint Martins - where Alexander McQueen and so many other fashion legends have studied! As you can see I was pretty happy to be here. What I really wanted to do was run through the fountains with the kids but I'm a sensible grown up and I hate fun I wouldn't want my Mulberry or my hair getting wet, would I?


If I really hated fun I definitely would not of been here! The roller disco was such a good laugh. It reminded me of play scheme at the community centre when I was little. Gordon kept showing off, skating backwards and spinning around but he fell on his ass loads, much to my amusement! Nobody likes a show off eh? I was just chuffed I could go in a straight line. My skating skills leave a lot to be desired but after the first 5 minutes or so, I got the hang of it and managed to stay upright the whole time - chufty badge for me! Each session lasts 2 hours but you'd be surprised how hard roller skating actually is. After about an hour of constant skating round the rink we were sweaty Bettys and my legs were aching, so we gave up and headed to the bar.


Disco Bistro are on hand at the rink to fuel any hungry skaters with some pretty epic looking burgers. We'd already eaten before we came so didn't have any food but judging by looks and the conversations I overheard lugged in on, I'd say the burgers are worth a try. The bar is serving up beer, wine, cocktails and soft drinks if you get thirsty as well. I had a lemon pimms mojito which went down well! You could also head back outside to cool down and watch the little light show from the fountains at night - so pretty!


Skate King's Cross is only in town until the 6th September so if you fancy testing out your skating skills, you'd better be quick! You'll get a good giggle at least. Tickets are £14.30 each including booking fees and skate hire. They charged my phone for me while we skated too so I'd say we got our money's worth. I booked ahead but you don't have to - people were coming and going the whole time we were there but I wouldn't say it was at all busy so you'd probably be ok to just chance it and turn up. For more info head to their website. Have fun!
