During the winter, the event opens from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily, excluding Christmas Day. Mornings are great for families, where you can explore Winter Wonderland at a leisurely pace. When the evening comes around, Hyde Park is transformed by thousands of sparkling lights – so grab your mulled wine, hot chocolate, or stein of Bavarian beer and get ready to join in the festive fun.


Since 2007, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland has been spreading the festive spirit for Londoners and tourists alike. With humble beginnings as an open-air Christmas market in Hyde Park, Winter Wonderland has since grown into an extravaganza with ice skating, shows, roller coaster rides, street food stalls, festive bars and live music.

During the 2023/24 season we celebrated our 16th anniversary – take a look back at some of the magical moments and milestones we’ve had throughout the years!
