Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland returns to London’s Hyde Park this winter, transforming the vast park into a festive fairyland.

This free event offers a range of fun, festive activities for the whole family, including an illuminated ice rink, magical Santa’s grotto and a plethora of fairground rides. Visitor’s favourites include the Christmas market with a traditional Bavarian theme running through its cafés and bars as well as the undercover restaurant, Spiegel Saloon.

One of the main attractions of this year’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is the Magical Ice Kingdom which will be returning with its breath-taking ice sculptures. The Kingdom is the largest of its kind in the UK, and was created exclusively for the Winter Wonderland.  Zippos’ evening circus spectacle Cirque Berserk pushes the boundaries of traditional circus entertainment with a death-defying knife throwing act, and daring high wire performance. The Winter Wonderland starts on the 22nd November and runs until the 5th January. Booking in advance may be required for some of the attractions and events, so check out www.hydeparkwinterwonderland.com for more information.

After embracing the winter weather in Hyde Park, why not come and warm up at DUKES London in our gorgeous PJ champagne lounge, which serves the finest Perrier Jouet champagne and champagne cocktails, or treat the family to an overnight stay at reduced rates in one of our Luxury Suites?
