A tale of freezing amusement at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London.

Winter Wonderland happened every year since 2007 in Hyde Park – an incredible set, full of all sorts of popular attractions – it’s a magnet attracting people of all walks of life that end up spending a few hours having fun on the site and giving money away to all sorts of carousels, food, drink, markets and rides.

Winter Wonderland is the capital's most popular winter event – since 2007 14 million people visited the Christmas destination.

According to the Sunday Times “it’s Christmas to the max”.

Winter Wonderland is a catalyst, a place where all meet, where race, credo, background and social class are completely irrelevant and where everyone can have fun for a few tokens. This is what makes this event so special and one of the venues in London where you get immersed in a truly diverse crowd.
