Why locals love it

The summer doesn't hold a monopoly over London's outdoor events, Winter Wonderland embraces the cold season with large outdoor markets, amusements and hot, multinational eateries. Rather than dwelling on what can be a long and gloomy end to the year, Londoner's come in their masses to Hyde Park and illuminate what is great about the festive season.

Why you should visit it

The sense of elation and community Londoner's revel in during the summer months endures through autumn and is reignited for over 2 months in London's largest park. You can feel adventurous and strap on some ice skates or simply stroll with a mulled wine and browse the quality market goods, the size of the festival accommodates all inclinations.

Special tip

Open: 21/11/14-04/01/15. Opening at 10am the crowds will be less during the day, but when the park is lit up at night the place is flooded with charm

Market stalls, games and rides with hot chocolate, mulled wine and beer available everywhere you look. Beautiful in the dark and family friendly but also a romantic setting! Close to restaurants and hotels (Regents Park) and everything is pay-as-you-go so you can choose what you want to do

Overrated. Too similar year after year, all things are the same in the stalls. If you see it once you don't need to come back

I went to the Winter Wonderland for the first time four years ago and it was great fun. However, I returned two years ago and it was horrible. Unfortunately it is a victim of it's own success and there are so many people that you can barely move, or see or do anything. I dont recommend taking children in the evening as there are a lot of drunk jerks and it's so busy they have to operate a one-out-one-in system with people queuing for about an hour. It's a shame as this used to be a really nice event.
