Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland returns for six weeks of festive fun, this year opening on 18th November and wrapping up on 3rd January.

The Winter Wonderland is a great family event, with a range of activities and attractions to keep you entertained, such as:

an ice rink - billed as London's largest outdoor rink, the hour-long skating sessions start at ten in the morning, with the final session beginning at nine in the evening.

- Zippos Christmas Circus is putting on a 50-minute festive circus show, with up to five shows daily taking place.

the giant observation wheel - it's 60 metres high and gives panoramic views over the Winter Wonderland, across the park and beyond. The pods are enclosed so if it's a bit chilly outside (and it will be), you won't feel a thing. Simply sit back and enjoy the views. One rotation on the wheel lasts about 15 minutes.

- Santa Land - kids will be making a beeline for this place. Santa Land will have rides, places to grab a bite to eat and Father Christmas. Yes, this is the place to come if you want to have a word with Santa about your Christmas list.

lots of fairground rides - many people come to Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland to enjoy the exhilarating rides there, such as the Power Tower, the Snow Jet and the Winter Wonderland Express. Rides for all ages available.

The Winter Wonderland prides itself on its food and drink offerings. You'll find The Carousel Bar, The House of St. Nicholas, The Spiegel Saloon and The Famous Bavarian Village. Want a quick snack? You're covered. Feel like a more leisurely sit-down affair? No problem. Just be sure you try some spicy, hot mulled wine - it is Christmas after all.

Shoppers will be keen to explore the Angels Christmas Market. With more than 100 stalls, this could be just the place to indulge in a spot of last-minute Christmas shopping.

It's free to enter Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland and enjoy the festive atmosphere, though rides and attractions charge a fee. Tokens are needed to pay for these, which can be purchased at booths located throughout the Winter Wonderland site.

If you do go along, remember to wear gloves and a woolly hat - it's going to be pretty darn cold there.
