Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland pops up in Hyde Park every winter from November – January. Visit the Market, Magical Ice Kingdom, Ice Rink, Giant Wheel and Circus. There are several activities which require prebooking.


Winter Wonderland provides a spectacular festive destination. Open every day from 17th November to 1st January (except Christmas Day), there’s something to excite people of all ages. Choose from one of our popular attractions, experience the thrilling rides, take a trip to Santa Land, browse the Christmas markets and enjoy the festive fare. FREE to enter and soak up the festival atmosphere!


At Winter Wonderland there’s something for everyone, whether you want to make your child’s dream come true at Santa Land, brave the exciting thrill rides, or just warm up on a mulled wine and join in the fun in the lively Bavarian Village. Come along early for a browse around the Christmas Markets, take a rest over some festive food and drink at one of the many eateries around the site, and enjoy some of the fantastic free live music.

There is no minimum age for children at the Ice Rink, Magical Ice Kingdom, Circus Shows or Giant Observation Wheel.

The minimum skate size on the rink is a children’s size 9. We do provide doubled-bladed skates for the tiniest of feet, but these are on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis. There are a limited number of skating aids available first come first served and charged at £5.00per session.

If you are visiting Zippos Circus there is an area for buggies to be left while you watch the show. Buggies cannot be taken into the auditorium. Most of Winter Wonderland is flat and level for buggies, with only gentle inclines – we have even built a level crossing at the Santa Express! There are also baby changing facilities at various disabled toilets situated around the Winter Wonderland site.
