As the festive period has come to a close, too has the annual festival held in London’s Hyde Park known as Winter Wonderland.
Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in 2016, the attraction opened its gates on Friday the 18th of November and entertained both London residents as well as visiting tourists from across the globe until the 2nd of January.
On their website, the event’s organizers say that “Winter Wonderland offers a dazzling array of activities and entertainment,” for its customers including “the UK’s largest open-air ice rink, an arctic adventure in the Magical Ice Kingdom, jaw-dropping circus shows, world-class ice dancing in The Nutcracker on Ice and stunning views across London in the Giant Observation Wheel.” The park also features the world’s biggest portable roller coaster for thrill seekers.
Entry is free to the public and while the festival is operational punters are able to explore and take advantage of the park completely free of charge, whether that be visiting one of the many attractions, sampling one of the many bratwurst/glühwein stalls or simply just going for a mooch.
The event has built a flawless reputation after its first century being described by the Metro as “The annual festive extravaganza,” and The Mail on Sunday said “if it’s fun you’re after, where better to head for than London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.” There is no doubt that it will be making a return as the winter and festive period does this year.
