Winter Wonderland is a great place to celebrate Christmas one of the most beautiful seasons of the year: lightings, Christmas markets… In London you can enjoy a place that gathers all the magic of the season, Winter Wonderland, a place where you will feel you are living in your own fairy tale.
This magic place offers a great range of activities perfect to enjoy with the family, to have a date with a special person or to have a nice time with friends. You can skate at the ice rink, the biggest in the United Kingdom, and enjoy attractions that could be part of a real theme park, such as the 60-metre Giant Observation Wheel, from which you will be able to enjoy amazing views of London skyline. There are also other quieter possibilities like magic performances or circus shows.
If you are one of those people who leave their Christmas gift shopping till the very last minute, you can take advantage and buy at the Christmas market, in which you can find decoration, typical sweets, clothes and jewellery.
If you also want to eat or drink, you will be able to choose different options such as the Ice Bar, made entirely in ice, from the glasses to the chairs and the decoration. This way, it is not strange to see the temperature reaching -10ºC. Another option –more traditional- is the Bavarian Village, a space where you will find bars, coffee shops and restaurants that recall the typical wooden German houses.
Hyde Park is the place where Winter Wonderland is celebrated. If you are in London during the Christmas season, do not miss the chance to live this experience. You can do it until the 1st of January.
