The Magical Ice Kingdom
The Magical Ice Kingdom will be back this year with a brand-new theme, centred around Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol, and will feature 500 tonnes of beautifully crafted snow and ice sculptures.
The Ice Rink
The ice rink at Hyde Park is set around a Victorian bandstand and glitters with the light of 100,000 Christmas lights. Sessions run every hour on the hour and last 50 minutes. The park recommends turning up 20 minutes before your booked session.
Zippos Circus shows take place in the Mega Dome, the newest and biggest circus tent the UK. For family friendly day time shows, Zippos Christmas Circus is the event to pick, featuring acrobatic and comic acts and the dancing Snow Bears. Danger junkies will be happier at Cirque Berserk's show featuring sensational feats of acrobatics.
Don't worry about flying to Germany for the Christmas markets this year. The Bavarian Village in Hyde Park will do just as well. As well as presents there's tempting treats (including spiced hot chocolate and mulled wine for parents) to keep you going.
As if winter in London was not cool enough – when stepping into Bar Ice, you’ll be transported to a freezing cold destination surrounded by sculptures and furniture made out of solid ice. Luckily, all visitors are provided with a thick winter cloak and gloves to keep warm and cosy.
Bar Hütte Karaoke
Experience some real Danish hygge (a quality of extraordinary cosiness) in your very own private Hütte (or, cabin). You and your family or friends will be served food and drinks in a snug and cosy atmosphere, and each Hütte includes a karaoke machine with everyone’s favourite Christmas classics.
