You know that Christmas is around the corner when Winter Wonderland opens.  It is wonderfully tacky and cheesy and just the right type of event to put you in the Christmas spirit.  It does get extremely busy in the evenings and at the weekends but, if big crowds don’t put you off, it’s well worth a visit.  The food and drink is free flowing and fairly reasonable for this type of event.

Really It's an amazing place to enjoy with family..


Tired of people complaining about these kind of Christmas events. It's like they've only just woken up and realised that FC is not real. It's London not the actual ruddy north pole. I can't wait to go on Boxing Day!

This place is awful, I'd rather eat my own head out with a spoon than go again....
