Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park

A trip to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is an annual tradition for Sam and I. A few years ago I even talked him into getting on the giant ferris wheel despite his terrible fear of heights. Last year we weren’t able to go on (the queue was just too long) but this year I got him on it again. It was absolutely lovely!

I still have yet to ride the giant swings, and I somehow have to either sell my soul to Sam to bribe him into it, or I’ll just have to talk someone else into going on it with me. Any takers?

My tip for beating the pre-Christmas crowds at Winter Wonderland is to go in the daytime, if you can. It gets absolutely packed in the evening, but it was completely manageable a few days before Christmas at abut 2 pm.

It’s always a huge shock to go back to Hyde Park after Winter Wonderland has been dismantled in January and just make out the faint lines of the attractions in the the grass. There’s still time left for you to visit – Winter Wonderland is open until Jan 4th!
