Underneath you is fluffy, cold snow.
You watch as the misty fog escapes your mouth anytime you take a breath. Every time you inhale a frigid prickle enters your lungs and every time you exhale the heat from your breath warms your lips. Around you are naked trees covered in powder white snow. Glistening icicles hang off the branches like bats. The snow sparkles as it's frozen to branches; These are the elements that capture Hyde Park’s annual Winter Wonderland.
Located in the heart of London in Hyde Park, allow yourself to immerse in all things festive from 21st November 2019 to 5th January 2020. Open at 4pm on Thursday 21st November, Winter Wonderland is open every day from 10am to 10pm.

As one of the capital’s 8 Royal Parks, Hyde Park is visited by millions of Londoners and tourists every year. Covering 350 acres, it’s home to a number of famous landmarks including the Serpentine Lake, Speakers’ Corner and Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.
