Nothing says Christmas in London quite like Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. It’s the ultimate festive one-stop shop for all. With so much happening and going on, here’s our breakdown of the best bits. 

What is Winter Wonderland 2019?

London’s biggest festive festival is back with a bang this Christmas. Amid its sparkly surroundings you’ll find winter markets, festive fairground rides, ice-skating, toasty winter street food, cosy grottos and, of course, gallons of glühwein to keep the seasonal celebrations going into the early hours. 

This year’s Winter Wonderland promises to be the best one yet, with a whole host of new major attractions joining the firmly established favourites – including a brand new, 70m observation wheel. And for those who enjoyed whizzing around the UK’s largest outdoor ice rink or nailing it at the legendary Bar Hütte Karaoke on their last visit, you’ll be able to do it again this time around with both returning to the festive festival.

When is Winter Wonderland open in 2019?

Winter Wonderland will open at 4pm on November 21 2019 and runs until January 5 2020. Other than the opening night, the festive village is open every day except Christmas Day (December 25) from around 10am to 10pm.

Where is Winter Wonderland?

Winter Wonderland is held in Hyde Park. The nearest tube stations are Marble Arch, Green Park, Hyde Park Corner, Victoria and Knightsbridge. Our recommendation is it’s best to avoid Hyde Park Corner tube station and head to one of the other tube stations, especially at weekends, as it can get particularly busy. Find out how to get to Hyde Park, London.

Is there an entry fee?

As always, entry to Winter Wonderland is free, though most attractions and shows inside will require you to purchase a ticket. To avoid disappointment, seats for the shows and tables in the bars can be booked in advance on the Winter Wonderland website.
