10 Reasons To Visit Hyde Park Winter Wonderland #FestiveSpotlightSeries

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland returns to London for six magical weeks from 17 November 2023 to 1 January 2024 - and tickets are on sale now!

Offering countless rides and attractions, spectacular family performances, delicious street food, Christmas market shopping, and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. We spoke to the organisers of the event to find out some reasons why you should visit Winter Wonderland this year, and make some exciting memories. Check them out below...


1. Ice Ice Baby

Go on an immersive exploration of a mystical frozen world at Magical Ice Kingdom, where this year’s theme of Norse Mythology has been crafted by an expert team of sculptors and artists using over 500 tonnes of ice and snow. Join the Ice Sculpting Workshops to try it out for yourself and sculpt to your hearts content. If you're still craving more icy activities, why not slide down the Real Ice Slide in partnership with Crystal Ski Holidays and challenge your friends and family to a race to the bottom.

2. Unbeatable Instagram Pics

At Winter Wonderland, everywhere you look is the perfect opportunity to capture the memories of your visit. Take a classic photo by the Luminaires, or at any of the photogenic locations throughout the grounds. Visit the brand-new Christmas Tree Arms, where the Christmas tree-clad facade will make the perfect Instagram picture. Strike a pose in front of the twinkly lights at the Ice Rink or show off your winning prize after playing the fun games on offer. Spend valuable moments together and share the memories forever.

3. All The World's a Stage...

For show lovers, Winter Wonderland has you covered. Zippos Christmas Circus is back again, bringing the best in acrobatics, aerial performances and dazzling dancers. If this isn’t enough adrenaline for you, join us at Cirque Berserk, an award-winning show that will have you on the edge of your seat. Debuting Tornado this year, Cirque Berserk will bring a host of daring skills, adrenaline-fuelled stunts, and a wild whirlwind of thrills. New for 2023, Justin Fletcher will also be joining us with his new show, Justin’s Christmas Singalong. If you know and love him from TV, this is your chance to sing and dance along with him at Winter Wonderland on selected dates throughout November and December.
