Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park until 6 January 2019

Back for 2018 and we think it’s going to be the best year yet! They’ve got lots of new attractions including Peter Pan on Ice, Teletubbies Christmas Show, Ice Sculpting Workshops, and their very own Comedy Club but let’s not forget our returning favourites, including an even bigger ice rink, jaw dropping acts in the Circus MegaDome and so much more. 🎅 🎄 🤶

For over 10 years, Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland has been spreading the Christmas spirit throughout London. The winter festival has become a landmark event for Londoners and tourists alike. With humble beginnings as an open-air Christmas market in Hyde Park, Winter Wonderland has since grown into an extravaganza with ice skating, shows, roller coaster rides, street food stalls, festive bars and live music.

It is still free to enter the Winter Wonderland grounds and take in the joyous atmosphere. With over 100 spectacular rides and attractions, it is no wonder why thousands of visitors return to Winter Wonderland each year to celebrate the Christmas season. Winter Wonderland is located in the heart of London in Hyde Park. As one of the capital’s 8 Royal Parks, Hyde Park is visited by millions of Londoners and tourists every year.

Covering 350 acres, it’s home to a number of famous landmarks including the Serpentine Lake, Speakers’ Corner and Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.

Winterville returns to Victoria Park this yuletide and it’s bigger, better and warmer!

An alternative festive experience, Winterville is the antithesis of Christmas theme parks; intimate, engaging and above all creative.

High-quality food and drink including Street Food traders scattered all over site, a variety of craft ales in the bars and a food market serving great food and fresh produce you can take away.

There are alternative club nights including Bugged Out and Guilty Pleasures looking after the weekend’s entertainment.

Entertainment for children, this year’s pantomime is the evergreen Snow White. Also new for this year, a cinema on site which will often be screening family classics and an all age’s circus!

Over 20 Christmas market stalls so you can get your Christmas shopping out of the way at Winterville!
