Winter Wonderland

Perhaps the most famously festive pop-up in the country; London’s Winter Wonderland is back at Hyde Park this year for an epic celebration of all things Christmas.

Grab a cup of mulled wine at the winter markets, show off your skills on the ice rink or brave the fairground rides. As well as all of the usual attractions for you to enjoy, this year will also see an alpine-style village with karaoke huts for festive sing-a-longs added to the festivities.

Natural History Museum Ice Rink

With the stunning Alfred Waterhouse's buildings as a backdrop, there’s no doubt that the ice rink at London’s famous Natural History Museum is one of the most enchanting places to spend a cold winters night.

As well as the majestic Christmas tree and usual holiday-inspired market stalls, Hotel Chocolat will also be there, ready to serve some of the most luxurious hot chocolates to warm you up after a stint in the rink. Or, if you don’t fancy getting your skates on, there’s an indoor viewing balcony and bar area where you can overlook the fun whilst enjoying a hot drink.

This Christmas, Winterville is swapping its usual residence in Victoria Park for a new spot in the famous Clapham Common.

Expect a whole range of attractions and events over the festive season; with an outdoor ice rink, laugh-out-loud comedy nights, crazy golf and even a retro roller disco! Or, if you want something a little more low-key, Backyard Cinema’s ‘The Winter Night Garden’ will be back to host screenings of classic Christmas films in their enchanted forest – the perfect place to get your annual ‘Home Alone’ fix.


London Bridge City Christmas Market

With it’s incredible views of both the Tower of London and Tower Bridge; the banks of the River Thames will once again be home to ‘Christmas by the River Market’ this year.
