Winter Wonderland is my favourite place to go at Christmas, it is so festive and instantly makes me feel happy. I always try and go at least once with someone during Winter, this year I managed to make it just in time for Christmas with my boyfriend.
As fun as it is during the day, you have to go when it’s dark to get the full effect of all the lights. Luckily during Winter, it gets dark around 4 pm so we made our way down on the train late afternoon. As soon as you get to Hyde Park you can see it and the colours and smells draw you nearer.
We spent the afternoon/evening looking around at all the stalls selling Christmas gifts, sweets, baked goods, mulled wine etc. This place is just the ultimate Christmas experience. You can’t go to Winter Wonderland without going on a few rides either, my favourite is the waltzers although these rides can be quite pricey.
The only way I can persuade my boyfriend to come is the Bavarian Beer House that lies inside. We both get a stein of beer and listen to whatever group is singing live and try out all the different meats (so far the kangaroo burger is my favourite).
Christmas is a time for being with the people you love and making memories, Winter Wonderland is a perfect place for this. I’m going to let my pictures speak for themselves but seriously check it out if you can.
