We recommend Slick Willies to anyone needing to hire skates for any of our classes although they are not the closest shop. From the shop, take bus number 9, 10, or 52 from Kensington Road (A315) east to Hyde Park corner and enter Hyde Park at Hyde Park Corner. Cross over South Carriage Drive at the Zebra crossing and you will then see the green roofed food kiosk through the trees. This is the east end of Serpentine Road but from the kiosk continue along Serpentine Road until the sandy horse path begins. There you will see and find your Skatefresh instructor.
Slick Willies rents all sizes of skates including children’s sizes.
