Time Out says

Hyde Park's seasonal makeover embraces an ice rink, a Giant Observational Wheel and 'Cirque d'Hiver' from the family-friendly Zippo's Circus, cosily accommodated in a heated big top, as well as various rides and attractions. There's no minimum age for skaters but under-12s must be accompanied and the smallest skates for hire are children's size 9 (adult skates go up to size 13). You can use your own skates as long as they're not speed skates. Wheelchair users are welcome on the ice at all sessions apart from the final session each day. Each of the attractions is priced separately, or there is a range of packages on offer that go some way to reducing the cost of a visit. If you're watching the pennies this Christmas, it's worth noting that entry to the site is free and an after-dark stroll is surprisingly atmospheric.
