Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park

This month’s specific is very special, as everyone knows it, and London is a magnificent place to be in December. Not only because of the varieties it offers, but because it contours a beautiful side of the holidays. But let us not dwell too much on that and move on to the actual topic. Today’s post is all about Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and how a small trip to it can change your perspective about winter in London.

Going back in time, 2007 was the year when Winter Wonderland was inaugurated in Hyde Park and ever since, it provides its visitors a glamouring and traditional winter experience!  It has become by far Londoners’ ( and of course, mine) favourite choice to do during the cold season.

It includes a large variety of options, such as: an ice rink, fairground rides, Santa’s grotto, Christmas market (yaay!) with wooden chalets and Bavarian-style bars and cafes, the helter skelter ride and so much more!

However, I wouldn’t recommend going with an empty wallet, because it’s not cheap ( unfortunately) and it’s fun!

As an international student in London, this is by definition not the cheapest place to go and visit, but, even on a budget, you can still have fun.  From my experience, £20 is more than enough to have some fun :drink mulled wine, enjoy a ride and buy a souvenir , with the transport to the park included! It’s a free-entry market, so you can still go there and delight your vision and senses !

Make sure you go at least once before it closes, forgot to mention, it runs from the 21st November 2014 to 4th January 2015 ( closed on 25th of December); opening times: everyday 10 AM until 10 PM.

Get some warm clothes and boots on, cover your head and hands in wool layers and hit the road!

Have fun!
