During the winter Hyde Park has an awesome festival, Winter Wonderland. It’s free to walk through and enjoy including a large German Christmas market. The market has 200 Christmas lit Bavarian style wooden chalets with jewelry, accessories, clothing, handmade crafts, and traditional Christmas decorations.
The kids and I had a lot of fun walking around looking at all the stuff for sell. We stopped for some apple cider and spiced wine. I wish we had planned to have dinner here, but at the time I didn’t know about it. We just happened upon it when we were walking around one night. It would have been fun to listen to the band and eat German food.
During the Winter Wonderland there are multiple shows going on.
- Zippos Christmas Circus will take you through an array of the finest circus acts. With incredible aerial acts, colourful clowns and skilled jugglers, this day time show is a perfect treat for all the family.
- Sooty’s Christmas Show is a festive puppet show good for younger children.
- Nutcracker on Ice is a 60 minute ice show especially created for Winter Wonderland.
For 9 – 15 pounds you can ice skate. Ice skating session times run every hour, on the hour, between 10:00 and 21:00. Each ice skating session will last 50 minutes.
