Climb Aboard the Enchanted Ferris Wheel of Hyde Park

It wouldn't be Christmas in London without a visit to Winter Wonderland, which is celebrating its 10th year this year !  One part kitsch, one part fantasy, one part old-fashioned Christmas market: you are taken back to your childhood you arrive at this ephemeral theme park, worthy of Father Christmas himself. Amazing ice sculptures, ferris wheel, ice skating rink, all sorts of rides, Christmas market and Ice Bar....there is something for everyone in the family.

The view over Hyde Park from the top of the Ferris wheel is well worth the hour long queue. Or, for the most clever, you can reserve most of the attractions online in advance. A fairytale-like escape and a good pretext for a walk through Hyde Park- even if you end the walk with a mulled wine and hot pretzel.

Open until 2 January 2017 from 10am to 10pm. Closed 25 December; free entry, attractions between £5 and £18.95. Info online at www.hydeparkwinterwonderland.com. Reservations recommended for star attractions.
