Starting 20 November Hyde Park will transform into Winter Wonderland for the following six weeks of winter festivities with Free Admission and a range of entertainment. The event runs from the evening opening on 20 November 2015 through to 3 January 2016.
Favourite attractions making a welcome return include Santa Land, a haven for young visitors where Father Christmas will be every day with his Elves. Meeting Santa is free and children receive a small gift. An official photographer will be taking souvenir shots that are available to buy on the day, but you can also take your own photos if you prefer. For Christmas shoppers, there’s the traditional German Christmas market with over 200 chalets. The Angels Christmas Market offers unusual and handmade gifts and crafts, including ceramics, candles, jewellery, wooden toys, nativity scenes and Christmas decorations.
Bring cash: Rides and attractions are accessed by tokens, which cost £1 each and are available at the token booths dotted around the site and cannot be bought in advance. Children’s rides start at £2, while other rides start at £3.
The popular Bavarian Village will be ready to serve bratwurst and mulled wine whilst hosting live music throughout the day and evening. In addition to the many restaurants and bars there will be delicious food available throughout the attraction to warm you up on a cold winter’s day. For the thrill-seekers, there will be an array of traditional and high energy rides.
