Christmas is such a magical time of year and best spent with friends and family. Hyde Park Winter is the perfect location to get together and enjoy the festivities. Open right through the Christmas season until the 5th of January there is still ample time to enjoy the wonderful activities on. If you’re traveling to London specially for the Christmas season, we suggest finding somewhere nearby Hyde Park to stay, such as the Holiday Inn London Regent’s Park so that you can easily walk to the Winter Wonderland. It is really one of the most special places to spend Christmas in the world, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself visiting a few times during your stay.
Open from 10am right through to 10pm, you can show off your moves on the ice either during the daylight or by nightlight. This tends to get pretty busy, especially in the evenings so it is a good idea to book in advance to secure a spot on the rink. This is heaps of fun for people of all ages.
The Magical Ice Kingdom:
What’s better than an ice sculpture? An entire kingdom made of ice. The Magical Ice Kingdom is crafted from over 200 tons of ice and snow. It is the largest of its kind in all of the UK and is designed to take your breath away. Bring you camera along so you can capture the dream-like world of ice.
The Giant Observation Wheel:
Does soaring 60 meters into London’s sky, while enjoying impressive views of this expanding city sound good to you? I thought so. This is a great way to get panoramic views of the city all while enjoying a romantic ride. Every flight takes around 12-15 mins so you’ll have plenty of time to take in the expansive views.
A Bunch of Rides:
There are a number of rides here, from rides designed to entertain smaller children right through to rides for thrill seekers. If you’re brave enough, make sure you check out the Air, Power Tower and Winter Wonderland express. There’s also the Winter Wonderland Star Flyer which is the closet feeling to flying. There’s even three roller coasters here for those who love to get their adrenalin pumping.
Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland has so much on offer, it would be easy to spend a few days here. Make sure you plan a visit before everything closes down on the 5th of January!
