Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland

By Linda Tancs

Are you ready for some Christmas cheer?  If so, then head to London’s Hyde Park for the annual Winter Wonderland.  You’ll feel the arctic chill at the Ice Kingdom, set at -8° celsius.  There are also ice skating sessions (one hour long), two circus shows (Zippos and Cirque Berserk) and a giant ferris wheel to wow the kids.  You can even get some holiday shopping in; over 100 stalls await you.  A new Yuletide Market is at the west end of the park, too.  This spectacular destination will be open until 6 January from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (except for Christmas Day).  You can get there via Hyde Park Corner, Green Park, Knightsbridge or Marble Arch.  Admission to the park is free, but you must have tickets for ice skating, the circus and the ferris wheel.   Book early!
