Hyde Park Winter Wonderland has announced the 2019 line-up of bookable family attractions for the UK’s most spectacular festive event of the year.
New and exclusive for 2019, The Magical Ice Kingdom will host a brand-new theme – A Christmas Carol. Journey through 500 tonnes of beautifully crafted snow and ice sculptures and relive the magical story of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will also have an all-new offering of seasonal, daily shows including, Mr. Men & Little Miss – The Show, and the exclusive Paddington™ On Ice residency.
Another debut for this year will be the biggest transportable Observation Wheel in Europe at 70m tall – allowing you to see across the entire event, beyond the treetops, and soak in the breathtaking cityscape of London.
Further family favourites have been reimagined for this year, including Zippos Christmas Circus and Cirque Berserk in the UK’s biggest circus tent.

A must-see for families is the exclusive Santa Land area, which includes festive-themed rides, games and the man himself – Father Christmas.

This year, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will also host a world record breaker – at 70m tall, the Giant Wheel is the biggest transportable wheel in the world! A whole 10m bigger than last year’s wheel, and with stylish ski-lift pods visitors can enjoy even more spectacular views across London.
Paddington™ On Ice will make its UK debut at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland this year, following an incredible success in Germany, where it plays at Europa-Park (Germany’s largest theme park).
Combining cutting edge choreography, stunning costumes and toe tapping music, the 45-minute show is the perfect length for family members of all ages. Featuring award-winning international figure skaters, Paddington™ On Ice is a show to delight the whole family.

Returning with an all new, seasonally themed show, Zippos Christmas Circus won’t fail to thrill and delight the whole family. With jaw dropping aerial acrobatics and laugh-out-loud clowning, this feel-good show is fun-packed from start to finish. At under an hour, it’s the perfect length for families and has a buggy park too.
Continuing the circus theme, Cirque Berserk returns with an all new, dystopian-themed show. Their international troupe of brave daredevils, aerialists and acrobats have raised the stakes yet again with a show packed with off the chart thrills and mind-blowing stunts. Back by popular demand, The Globe of Death returns with motorcyclists reaching speeds of 60mph as they hurtle around the giant steel cage. It’s a fast-paced, full throttle thrill like no other.
Surrounding the picturesque Victorian bandstand in London’s beautiful Hyde Park, the UK’s largest Ice Rink returns to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. Visitors can unwind and glide across the ice in the tranquil, leafy setting as the bandstand singer provides a gentle musical backdrop – it’s a stunning, quintessentially festive scene! Penguin skating aids are available to support the little ones and, for the less experienced, ice guides can be hired.
Catch a glimpse of Santa this year at the magical experience for children that is Santa Land. Featuring Santa’s Grotto and a 45m Ice Slide, the attraction is free for all and returns to light up the little ones’ faces. There’ll be plenty of sweet treats and gifts for those who have been good!
