Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park in London

Winter Wonderland is a one-stop destination for family entertainment. It's a complete day out for all the family. The market-cum-funfair usually runs from mid November to the first week of January in the New Year.

Winter Wonderland is centrally located at the Hyde Park and is easily accessible on public transport (tubes, buses). Admission to Winter Wonderland is free. You only need to pay for rides that take your fancy. There are lots of token booths all around the Wonderland and you can buy tokens for all the rides and attractions from these booths.









One of the main attractions at Winter Wonderland is the Ice rink for skating. You can book these tickets in advance as they normally sell out. However we got the tickets on the day of our visit. The skating rink sessions are 1 hour long.







There are over a dozen bars, cafes and restaurants scattered all over Winterland. And over a 100 stalls that sell art and crafts to gift items.












There are a whole range of games and attractions at Winter Wonderland. Some of the interesting ones are:
  • Angels Christmas Market
  • Avalanche
  • Bavarian Village
  • Black Hole
  • Carousel
  • Christmas Star
  • Elves Workshop
  • Fantasia
  • Giant Observation Wheel
  • Haunted Mansion
