2. Winter Wonderland

For six weeks, Hyde Park quite literally transforms into a winter wonderland. Suitable for couples, and family alike, Winter Wonderland will thaw the frostiest of visitors. The main park (food stalls, German beer tent and market) is free to enter, however if you want to visit the payable attractions such as Cinderella on Ice, the Observation Wheel, ice skating or Circus performances you’ll need to book tickets in advance.

Winter Wonderland is just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, making us an ideal base for all the festivities.

Location: Hyde Park
