New for 2019

New Giant Wheel

Soar 70 metres above Hyde Park in the tallest transportable wheel in the world.

The Giant Wheel is now closed for the season.

This year, our brand new wheel is taller than ever! At Hyde Park Winter Wonderland you can now ride on the tallest transportable wheel in the world.

See London’s skyline from a brand new 70m height and be one of the first customers to experience a bigger and better view beyond the treetops of Hyde Park and the city. Sit back, relax and enjoy the peace of being high above while watching the festivities below.

Take an early morning flight and see for miles, or come for an evening treat and see Winter Wonderland illuminated with thousands of twinkly lights below! In the comfort of enclosed pods, take time out to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or special occasion.

Fast track, sponsored by O2 Priority, is available to purchase for The Giant Wheel. With a Fast Track pass, you can skip the queues and enter the pods from an exclusive entrance. With limited Fast Track passes every hour, you’re guaranteed a speedy entry to The Giant Wheel.

For guaranteed privacy, why not book a ‘Private Pod’ which can hold 6 people?




Each ‘flight’ takes approximately 10 minutes.

The last flight is at 21:45 – make sure you allow enough time for the last flights.

Giant Wheel sessions are available from 21st November 2019 to 5th January 2020.
