Every day, hundreds of tourists and Londoners go to Hyde Park to relax in nature right in the centre of town. However, with Christmas coming, there’s another reason to spend time in the historic park of the capital - it’s name is Winter Wonderland and it welcomes visitors of every age with its festive atmosphere. Dozens of rides, attractions and performances light up the winter from morning to evening, when Hyde Park is illuminated by dazzling light displays. Among the experiences not to miss, the view of the snow-covered city from the world’s highest panoramic Ferris Wheel, a spin around the largest open-air skating rink in the U.K. and a magic journey through the Ice Kingdom, its theme this year, A Christmas Carol. Living and breathing cartoon characters will greet children at the Comedy Club after all the fun they’ll have at Santa Land, a play area just for them. And while the Circus MegaDome is ready to amaze everybody with breathtaking performances, those with an artistic streak themselves can take part in the Ice Sculpting Workshop. After some shopping at London’s largest Christmas market, you can enjoy the funky vibes at Bar Ice or enjoy Bavarian beer, vin brulé and holiday specialties at the numerous cafés and theme restaurants throughout the park.
