Rides, ice skating, a Christmas market and mouth-watering food can only mean one thing: Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park, of course! This is the absolute best way to get into the holiday spirit and there is so much to do that will have you wanting to come back for more.
You don’t have to be an Olympian to go ice skating at the Ice Age 4 skating rink. Glide through the glittering rink that is illuminated by over 100,000 lights to make every moment magical. You will want to book your session in advance, as this event is very popular!
Created specifically for Winter Wonderland, the Magical Ice Kingdom is a breath-taking experience through ice and snow. As you walk through Stalagmite Forest and Ice Castle, admire the beautiful woodland ice creatures including bears, wolves and even unicorns. There is timed entry for this event, so you will want to choose a time slot before entering!
Going to the circus is fun, but seeing a Christmas circus is even better! Back by popular demand, the Zippos Christmas Circus is a perfect treat for the whole family. Watch jugglers, aerialists, and clowns as they entertain the crowd with comedy and thrills. Even the little ones will have their attention held!
In contrast to the family-fun oriented Christmas Circus, Zippos also presents Cirque Berserk for the evening crowd. Following a gothic storyteller, the show takes inspiration from exciting tales of the brothers Grimm. Crazy high-wire acts, acrobats and motorcycle spectacles will illustrate tales in ways you’ve never seen before!
Soar sixty metres into the London sky on the Giant Observation Wheel. For fifteen minutes, take a ride to see the beautiful London skyline. Private pods are available to give you an uninterrupted 360 degree panoramic view.
Like to feel the adrenaline? Well there are plenty of rides to please everyone from thrill seekers to relaxing riders. Carousels, fun houses, and crazy coasters add to the excitement of the atmosphere!
Another attraction to the wonderland is the Christmas market. Over 150 vendors are there, selling everything from handmade crafts to winter wear to make your Christmas shopping experience even better.
And of course, what is a Winter Wonderland without the big man himself? Watch the little ones faces light up at the chance to meet Santa himself in his grotto. Watch Santa and his elves preparing for the big day in Santa’s factory.
This event is free of admission, so take advantage of London’s spectacular Christmas destination!
