Hyde Park Winter Wonderland 2017
From 17 November 2017– 1 January 2018
It’s not hard to see why Winter Wonderland has been nicknamed ‘London’s spectacular Christmas destination’. You can feel the festive spirit in the air from the entrance. With over 200 wooden chalets selling the best Christmas themed products, you’ll struggle to run out of things to do and eat!
It opens daily from 10am to 10pm, apart from the first night when it opens from 5pm. It is closed on Christmas Day.
Winter Wonderland activities
A glistening ice rink will be laid out around the Victorian bandstand, brought to life by the twinkling overhead lights. There will be two circuses, an observation wheel and the Magical Ice Kingdom, as well as themed bars for the adults. 2017 also sees the return of the family-friendly ‘Sooty Christmas Show’ and the brand new production of Cinderella on Ice. There really is something for everyone.
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.
The Magical Ice Kingdom
An arctic adventure for the whole family. Enter the Magical Ice Kingdom and go on a voyage to the deep depths of the sea. Look for sea gods, come face to face with an octopus battle and search for the mermaids housed in their grotto. Created entirely from ice and snow, the Magical Ice Kingdom is filled with awe-inspiring sculptures full of myth and mystery.
Cinderella on Ice
Especially created for Winter Wonderland, get ready to experience 50 minutes of pure joy and icy magic. The Imperial Ice Stars will dazzle you with the story of an eligible bachelor’s heart captured by Cinderella and her battle with her step-sisters to ensure true love prevails. Don’t miss this spectacular show of world-class skating and the modern retelling of the fairytale classic.
