A Guide to Winter Wonderland

Updated: Dec 24, 2021

Based in Hyde Park, it's one of London's most popular attractions, and for good reason.



As Xmas nears, 'tis the season to be jolly and head on over to Winter Wonderland, an absolutely classic British attraction in the winter months, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit. Admittance must be pre-booked and all visitors will need to have an entry ticket prior to getting there. You will need to purchase an Off-Peak, Standard, or Peak admission, dependent on when you want to be there.


Make sure you dress appropriately - it gets cold in London! The first layer you put on must be warming and well fitted - really snug to your skin. If you pick a warm enough base layer, it won’t let any kind of chilly air come near to you and you should stay cozy for the whole day. I would suggest dressing in a comfy, breathable material like fleece.


Give yourself time to check out rides or games, watch a handful of performances and test a few bits of tasty food and spiced mulled wine. Remember that fairly sizeable charges apply for rides, ice skating, big top performances, the ferris wheel and more attractions - so if you do want to try any of these, you’ll need to bring along some spending money.


Winter Wonderland is at its best after dark. Even if you arrive in the day, be sure to stick around until the sun goes down to see how gorgeous it looks at night. Have the greatest time on your visit to Winter Wonderland!
