Winter Wonderland is now a festive staple! It’s basically a Christmas explosion in Hyde Park – there are fairground rides, Christmas Markets and a chance to visit Santa! Winter Wonderland is free to enter but because it’s so popular, make sure you get tickets for any of the main attractions early as tickets frequently sells out on the weekend and evenings. Visit hydeparkwinterwonderland.com/ for more information.
If you are a closet witch or wizard, this is going to be the one for you. Until February 2014, the Harry Potter Studio Tour will be doing ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’. Not only will you see Hogwarts covered in a white blanket, but there will be festive props from the movies on show and there is a chance to see Mrs Weasley’s famous knitted jumpers! With a shuttle bus service from Watford Junction train station it isn’t difficult to get to either. To book your tickets go to wbstudiotour.co.uk/
There are loads of places to go ice skating at this time of the year, but my favourite would have to be Eyeskate at the London Eye, where you can skate beneath the London Eye. As well as been a new way to see one of London’s most famous landmarks, with prices starting from £9.45 per adult it’s not going to break the bank.
Nothing screams Christmas more than the classic British pantomime. Panto’s are fun, camp and a perfect way to get in the festive spirit. Aladdin is being performed at The Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage (15 minutes on the train from Hatfield) and stars Eastenders actor Shaun Williamson and Paul Laidlaw as Widow Twankey.
