Citiskate London - the inline skating professionals

"brilliant course! Thank you so much for the patience, the laughs and (some) falls too.
I've been raving about the skating lessons to my friends too so expect some coming your way later in the year!"

Claire from the May course

Thank you for taking me from 'putt putt' to 'vroom vroom' in two courses. I stated in my first course
I'd like to skate to work and my instructor said it would be possible within weeks. It took one course to do it via the pavement and another course to take the roads. My instructor was the founder of the Friday night skate and Sunday Rollerstroll so I was in good hands!
Mark, March course

Our rollerblade courses have received five star reviews from Timeout, London course meisters Hotcourses
as well as TNT magazine.

Kids looking to keep active this can join Wheel Excitement Summer Camp in Kensington Gardens running throughout the summer holidays. The programme runs 10am-4pm Monday to Friday and features inline skating and skateboarding skills and games.

Get rolling with our group skating courses

At Citiskate we are responsible for getting more people skating in the UK than anyone else via our
lessons, free events and trips abroad to foreign skater cities. Just take a look at the recent Easyjet
skating article about night skating.

Our courses are suitable for all levels from absolute or post beginners (two groups) to intermediate
and advanced sessions. You can also hire skates and keep them for the duration of the course so
you can practice.

You can join the Saturday course, above or the one of our other locations
Courses are also available later in the year.

Over 40 and worried you'll be swamped by kids?
We had a reporter from The Sunday Times come along and found most skaters were over-thirty!
Fitness: Over forties sporties

We also had an amazingly frank review in the weekend FT

That was fifteen years of skating the London Friday night skate!
We've come a long way baby! In May 2016 the London Friday night skate was 15 years old! Over the years Britney, William and even the sleepless insomniac David Blaine have all been there, done that and got the T shirt.

Starting in May 2006 we followed the London-based route of the famous Monopoly board with everything from Old Kent Road to Mayfair. And there were balloons. And free Red Bull. Please send your feedback and photos on the website below. Full details on the Friday Night Skate website.

Crystal Palace Rollerstroll boosts south London skate scene

The longest ever Rollerstroll London skating has ever seen was a phenomenal success. Over 140
skaters joined a route starting at Hyde Park Corner then passing several south London green
spaces including Battersea, Wandsworth, Clapham, Dulwich and Crystal Palace park. Watch this
space for more photos.
