Christmas family fun aplenty with a huge ice rink, two circuses, an observation wheel and the Magical Ice Kingdom, plus themed bars for the grown-ups

The Grinch would have a real job stealing all the Christmas from Hyde Park’s massive tribute to festive fun, which is back for 2015. Entry to Winter Wonderland is free, and a wander past the fairground rides, around child-friendly Santa Land (including Santa’s grotto) or through the Christmas markets is a real treat for anyone feeling the spirit of the season, as long as you’re ready to hear all those songs as you potter.

Other attractions at Hyde Park’s annual sparkly Christmassy addition include a Giant Observation Wheel and two circuses – ‘Christmas Circus’ and ‘Cirque Berserk’ – from the family-friendly Zippos Circus. Winter Wonderland’s ice rink, the biggest outdoor rink in the UK, surrounds the Victorian bandstand and is illuminated with more than 100,000 lights.

The Magical Ice Kingdom is your chance to get up close to some real ice and snow, meeting some mythical frozen beasts as you explore a chilly forest. Along with the 60-metre observation wheel, rollercoasters and fairground rides will keep thrillseekers happy. A good alternative for those who prefer to stay on solid ground are the selection of themed bars with real fires, except for the Ice Bar (for obvious structural reasons) where even the glasses you drink from are made of ice.

If you’re skating, be aware that while there’s no minimum age for skaters, under-12s must be accompanied by someone 16 or over and the smallest skates for hire are children’s size 9 (adult skates go up to size 13). You can use your own skates as long as they’re not speed skates. Wheelchair users are welcome on the ice. There are also ice guides who can look after groups of up to 15 skaters at a time (for an additional charge). Online booking is now open for ticketed events.
