Winter Wonderland activities
A glistening ice rink, the biggest outdoor rink in London, will be laid out around the Victorian bandstand, brought to life by the twinkling overhead lights. There will be two circuses, the world’s tallest Observation Wheel, as well as Karoke, themed bars and comedy clubs for the adults. 2019 also sees the brand new addition A Christmas Carol in the Magical Ice Kingdom, a mind-blowingly beautiful crafted world of snow and ice sculptures, telling Charles Dickens’ traditional Christmas story.
Worried about the cold?
Not everything is located outside. An icon that kids will want to meet resides in a warm cabin. That’s right, Santa will be in town throughout the whole event! Make your child’s day by stopping in and saying hi. The themed bars also come with real fires to keep you snug, apart from the ice bar for obvious reasons! If you want to see brilliant acts of dancers, magicians, jugglers, acrobats and loads more, then the circuses are another handy indoor activity.

Get ready to experience 45 minutes of pure joy and icy magic. Joining the UK for the first time having been a smash-hit in Germany, the production features award-winning international figure skaters, wonderful costumes, and of course Paddington himself! This is one the whole family can enjoy.
