Winter Wonderland will return to Hyde Park this Christmas after a taking a hiatus last year due to the pandemic, it was announced on Thursday.

Attractions will include the UK’s largest outdoor ice rink, ice sculpting workshops and a new Ice Kingdom experience.

There will be a 70s disco-themed ice bar, Zippos Christmas Circus and a 70-metre giant wheel among hundreds of other rides and games.

It will be open daily from 10am from November 19 - but with ticketed time slots and restricted numbers of guests to adhere to previous Covid guidelines that may or may not be reinstated during winter.

Event director Suzy Griffiths said they wanted to deliver the “same magical experience” as pre-Covid seasons.

“Like everyone and most industries, we have faced challenges as we continue to navigate the pandemic and evolving requirements for staging events,” she said.

“We’ve had to make some adjustments to this year’s event, including reducing capacity and introducing timed entry tickets, and are prepared to adapt in response to new or changing guidance.

“However, we’re still aiming to deliver the same magical experience everyone knows and loves, and after entering during their ticketed time slot, visitors are welcome to stay and enjoy the fun for as long as they like until we close.

“In the meantime, we’re continuing to monitor the situation and are working with the relevant authorities to ensure we’re following all guidelines in place at the time of the event, as the safety of our visitors and everyone involved remains our priority.

“Our team has put everything into making Hyde Park Winter Wonderland happen this year and we can’t wait to see all the faces of pure enjoyment when we welcome everyone back this Christmas.”

Tickets go on sale on 5 August.
