Safety at Winter Wonderland

Security

At Winter Wonderland, the safety and security of our visitors is of the utmost importance. We want you to enjoy your visit and feel safe in the knowledge that you’re being looked after by our dedicated staff.

On Arrival

On your arrival at Winter Wonderland, additional safety and security checks will be in place. We advise arriving well in advance of any booked attractions to allow extra time for this. Please co-operate with our security teams as they carry out this important work.

Bringing Bags

There may be restrictions on the size of bags that are allowed into the event. We strongly advise not bringing large bags or luggage. Please note there are no luggage lockers at Winter Wonderland.

We ask all guests to be vigilant and not to leave bags and belongings unattended.

Keeping You Safe

We have renewed our security plans this year, having worked closely with the Metropolitan Police, Westminster Council, and all the relevant authorities to keep our practices up-to-date. The site has extensive perimeter protection, is closely monitored at all times, with 100% bag searches at the entrances and many additional measures you won’t even be aware of. Our teams are working around the clock to keep you safe and ensure you have the best time on your visit to Winter Wonderland.

We ask all guests to be vigilant and not to leave bags and belongings unattended.

Weather

Winter Wonderland is an outdoor event so make sure you dress appropriately as we open in rain, snow or shine! There are seats in multiple covered seating areas across the site, providing warmth and shelter in varying degrees of enclosure – some of which are heated. There are also many benches throughout the site for you to rest your legs whilst soaking up the festive spirit!

The Ice Rink operates in all weather conditions and no refunds will be given due to inclement weather. In the unlikely event that ticketed events are closed PWR reserves the right to offer a refund or reschedule your booking to an alternative date/time (subject to availability).
