Whilst for the adults there are themed bars serving German beers and lagers in steins. Delicious street food is plentiful so you will not go hungry! Riding the 70m observation wheel will take you high up over the treetops and afford you spectacular views of the London skyline.

The nightly illuminations are absolutely dazzling.

Adults will enjoy the Winter Wonderland Comedy Club. And for those keen to learn there are ice sculpting workshops where you can perfect your artistic skills. For beer lovers the German-style Bavarian village offers a great atmosphere where you can down steins of beer to the sounds of live music. If you find that too hot to handle then you might enjoy the Ice Bar. Sounds chilly for the winter months – even the glasses you drink from are made of ice!

Street food at the Park is great. Tasty snacks include, for instance, hot dogs, smoked salmon (smoked on the spot!), hot chestnuts, churros, pasta, corn and the list goes on…..

Entry into Winterland is free of charge. You can enjoy brightly illuminated fairground rides, and child-friendly Santa Land with its own Santa’s grotto. As well as some 150 Christmas market stalls offering a huge variety of gift items, produce and Christmas fare. The sounds of Christmas can be heard throughout the site as you stroll around with both piped and live music playing continuously. You can warm up with a glass of mulled wine. And snack on a delicious hog roast or hot dog. Whilst the children feast on doughnuts and hot chocolate.

Winter Wonderland recommend advance booking for shows etc. to save queueing on the day.

How to get there

Very conveniently located in Central London with lots of access options by underground and by bus. The nearest tube stations are Marble Arch, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner, Victoria and Knightsbridge. We recommend you use the other stations as Hyde Park Corner is busy – particularly at weekends.

There is car parking nearby. But please note there is not much availability and it is expensive so travel by public transport is highly recommended.

And if it’s been raining, don’t forget the wellies!

Diary note: Winter Wonderland is on until 5 January 2020.

In conclusion, Winter Wonderland is a great place to visit!
