Winter is coming
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.
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
