Get into the festive spirit as family favourite Winter Wonderland returns to London's Hyde Park. This free-to-enter event includes a host of Christmas-themed fun and activities, including big top shows, an observation wheel and a huge Christmas market.
Activities at Winter Wonderland
Winter Wonderland provides fun, laughter and excitement for both adults and children. Skate around the stunning ice rink which circles the Victorian bandstand, enter the Magical Ice Kingdom with its 'ice forest' of frozen sculptures and gleaming ice castle, and enjoy the acrobatic wonders of shows at Zippos Circus and Cirque Beserk.
If you're a thrill-seeker, there are plenty of rides to try. Younger children can enjoy gentle activities such as carousels, helter skelters and funhouses. Older children and adults, meanwhile, will love the adrenaline-fuelled rollercoasters. Tokens for these rides can be purchased at dedicated token booths.
For something more sedate, take a seat on the observation wheel for a flight 60m above London, offering stunning views of the city's skyline.
Winter Wonderland's Christmas Markets
Enjoy perusing the Christmas markets full of arts and crafts trinkets, jewellery and decorations that make perfect presents for friends and family. Explore the Angels and Yuletide market, where charming wooden chalets are overflowing with festive goods.
Food and Drink at Winter Wonderland
If you're feeling peckish or are in need of a warming drink, head to the various restaurants, bars and food stalls. Try some churros, sip mulled wine or keep warm with a frothy hot chocolate. There's also the chance to try some festive German fare, such as German sausage and glühwein in the Bavarian Village.
Winter Wonderland Tickets
Winter Wonderland is free to enter but some activities require a paid-for ticket, including popular attractions such as ice skating, the observation wheel, Zippos Circus, Cirque Beserk and the Magical Ice Kingdom.
You can also visit Winter Wonderland as part of a festive-themed night-time bus tour of London which takes in top sights such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye.
