One of the most splendid days out in London is the ten-year-running Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. And it certainly lives up to its name: it’s another land – a place where Christmas songs about roasted chestnuts and sleigh bells come to life.
And there’s so much to do!
You can skate in the UK’s largest open-air ice rink, set around a classic Victorian bandstand, beneath a canopy of fairy lights. Whether you’re looking for a romantic date with your partner or fun family time, this is the perfect activity for everyone!
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland has entertainment options for all ages. Watch live music, adorable puppets in Sooty the Christmas Show, wild acrobatics in Cirque Berserk, the world-class performance of Nutcracker on Ice, and so much more!
German Christmas Market
Instead of a cocktail, maybe you’d like to enjoy hot cocoa and a bratwurst beneath the glittering lights and festive ornaments of the German Christmas Market. With over 200 Bavarian-style wooden chalets, you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift or snack. Learn more about Hyde Park Winter Wonderland’s Christmas Market here!
A Unique Ice Bar
Get your cozy coat and gloves at the door at the enchanting Ice Bar, where even your seats are carved from ice! Sip cocktails from ice glasses, and snuggle in closer to your special someone in this chilly, beautiful environment.
Rides and Games
Don’t forget about the crazy, exciting rides at Hyde Park! The daring can ride on Star Flyer or Air. If you’re looking for a more relaxing adventure, check out Santa Land, where you and your kids can visit Santa’s workshop as his elves check their naughty and nice list.
Magical Ice Kingdom
This year, be sure to explore the Magical Ice Kingdom, an enchanting ice world reminiscent of Narnia or perhaps the North Pole. An incredible 500 tonnes of ice and snow make up this magical Nordic world of frozen sculptures, where you can fish with the Inuits, and explore the Palace of Polar Bears.
With its theatrical performances and rides for children, and festive cocktails at Bar Ice for adults, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland really is the perfect day out for the whole family. And, as an added bonus, Hyde Park isn’t far from many of our London Perfect rentals! To find out about Winter Wonderland opening times and for further details, click here.
