It’s that time of the year again folks! To get us all into the festive spirit, London has set up a pretty amazing Christmas market at Hyde Park. If you’re looking for last minute Christmas stocking fillers, hearty food, mulled wine, thrills and adventure, or even just a relaxing evening out with your loved ones, Winter Wonderland has it all. Just less than a month left before it closes, an evening at Winter Wonderland will leave you with fond memories to end the year 2014.
Opening times: 10am to 10pm everyday from 22 November 2014 until 04 January 2015, closed on Christmas Day.
The very main entrance is accessible here, only 5 minutes walking distance from Marble Arch tube station.

Stretch of food stalls along the famous Bavarian village where you can find a load of bratwurst and beer.
A plain Bratwurst hotdog for £5 and cold (or rather rude) customer service, I’d hold back my recommendation on this one.
For those with sweet tooth, a wide selection of Haribos!
The fire pit with a rustic theme full of farm house food. Charcoal smoked Salmon in the blitz anyone?
This has by far been the best Winter Wonderland I’ve been to, it is much bigger with a great selection of stalls. Be sure to layer up!
