See Hyde Park transformed into a magical Winter Wonderland!
...take an icy night stroll through the Magical Ice Kingdom, complete with real snow, icebergs, a shipwreck on an arctic ice floe, and the Palace of the Polar Bears!
...or whizz around the UK's largest outdoor ice rink, stretched around Hyde Park's picturesque Victorian Bandstand. If you want to see how the professionals do it, then buy yourself a ticket for 'The Nutcracker on Ice' starring The Imperial Ice Stars.
If you don't fancy doing any skating yourself, then how about watching the action from the Giant Observation Wheel?
Santa Land is where your little kids can meet Father Christmas and his elves inside the Toy Factory Fun House. Zippo's Circus will make a welcome return as well with its world-class clowns, jugglers and aerial acts. There will also be an evening stunt show especially for the older ones -- Cirque Berserk.
A traditional Bavarian Village will serve up everything from bratwurst and mulled wine to hot chocolate and beer... or you can just sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
If you don't fancy the rides then there will be more than 200 wooden-style chalets selling everything from wooden toys and arts and crafts, to colourful ceramics, candles, nativity scenes and Christmas tree decorations.
