Winter Wonderland

KidRated’s Winter Wonderland Top Tips:

  • Expect crowds particularly on weekend afternoons
  • Wrap up warm for the Magical Ice Kingdom as it’s -8 degrees inside
  • Keep a lookout for any celebrities wandering around!

Winter Wonderland this year will open in November

Christmas in London wouldn’t be right without a visit to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. Whether you are in the mood for ice skating at the Ice Rink or exploring the Magic Ice Kingdom, enjoying a Zippos Circus performance or just soaking up the Christmassy wintery atmosphere, there is plenty to do at Winter Wonderland. You can even meet Father Christmas.


Individual attractions such as the circus, which is in the biggest circus tent in the UK, ice rink or ice kingdom do cost money and should be booked in advance. However, as the entrance is free, this is a great place to pop into if you find yourself at a loose end in Central London.


There are also plenty of stalls selling Christmassy trinkets as well as food and drink. At the Bavarian Village, everyone can enjoy bratwurst and parents can help themselves to a warm cup of mulled wine while listening to festive live music throughout the day.

Booking Advice:

  • Entrance is FREE
  • Specific attractions must be booked in advance
  • Tokens must be bought to use the rides

  • Get ready to hum that Mariah Carey tune as this is festive fun with bright lights.
  • Set a spend limit with the kids before you get there as it’s easy to get carried away.
  • Teens can have a evening fun without the parents as there’s good security patrolling.
  • Who can resist mulled wine and a Nutella crepe? Not me!
  • It’s open from 10am so bring the preschoolers in the morning when there aren’t any crowds.
  • At weekends in December it can be bonkers busy so best to avoid.
