#177: Go to Winter Wonderland

Since 2005, a large area of Hyde Park off of Park Lane has been transformed into a whimsical Winter Wonderland, offering Christmas market stalls, food and drink stands, a circus, vast array of amusement park rides for young and old including a 53-metre tall Ferris wheel which dominates the winter skyline. I've been meaning to go to Winter Wonderland since it opened, but never quite got around to it and so was determined that I would venture into the park this year.

There's a real German Christmas market feel to the place which is helped by the Bavarian Village, Oktoberfest hall, live music and vendors selling bratwurst, pretzels beer and mulled wine. It was a great way to kick off the Christmas season.
