Christmas is just around the corner, and the excitement is setting in (among the Christmas shopping panic!) for so many of us. What better way to get in the festive spirit then to take a trip to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland?
Open every day from the 21st November 2014 to the 4th January 2015 (except Christmas Day), there is something to excite people of all ages. Free to enter, you can take a browse around the Christmas markets, or pay an entrance fee to enjoy one of the events popular attractions, such as ice skating or a visit to the Ice Kingdom.
Here’s the full list of what you can experience at Winter Wonderland during November to January.
Ice Skating: Take full advantage of their outdoor ice skating rink!
Ice Kingdom: Walk through elegant sculptures, created purely from ice.
Circus: Choose from family favourite Zippo’s Circus or the high-energy daredevil show Cirque Berserk in the evening.

Ice Bar: Enjoy a cocktail or two in a bar made completely out of ice.

Wander around the Bavarian Market, and visit the range of bars, such as the Carousel Bar that gently moves when you are sitting on it, along with the popular Bavarian Beer hall, where you can enjoy a stein of German beer and a bratwurst!
Whilst Winter Wonderland is one for all the family, Winterville 2014 is the perfect place for adults to visit. Like Winter Wonderland, this is free to enter, and it takes place in Victoria Park, a stone’s throw away from our Roman Road store.
Launching this December, the event accumulates in a ticketed New Years Eve closing party. Winterville will include a Town Square, Market Place and Downtown Area, with an ice rink, Ferris Wheel, roller disco and horse-drawn carriages that will take you around the park. Vintage motorcycles will be performing death-defying stunts on the Wall of Death.
For adults, the popular ‘Shit Faced Shakespeare‘ production will also be taking place here. A cast of classically trained actors and a randomly assigned drunk creates a brand new, unique way to enjoy a Shakespeare play, with plenty of laugh out loud moments.
There will also be a range of hot and cold foods, bars and pop-up restaurants available.
