After the huge success of last year’s event, we’re now set to make Hyde Park Winter Wonderland even better!
From 23rd November to 6th January Hyde Park will be transformed into a festively glistening destination with various rides and attractions including a Giant Observational Wheel and two circuses – ‘Christmas Circus’ and ‘Cirque Extreme’ – from the family-friendly Zippos Circus.
Winter Wonderland’s ice rink, the biggest outdoor rink in the UK, has a new home this year, surrounding the Victorian bandstand. While some activities are ticketed, it’s worth noting that entry to the site, including Santa Land and the Christmas Market, is free and an after-dark stroll is surprisingly atmospheric. If temperatures plummet and you need to defrost, there’s a fully heated and covered bar/restaurant, the Spiegel Saloon, with live entertainment every night. If you’re skating, be aware that while there’s no minimum age for skaters, under-12s must be accompanied and the smallest skates for hire are children’s size 9 (adult skates go up to size 13).
You can use your own skates as long as they’re not speed skates. Wheelchair users are welcome on the ice.
