Reliving your Childhood in Hyde Park
Winter is fast approaching and while it may be just be bleak and cold weather to some, it can also be a chance to try to relax and have fun, just as you did when you were a child. It is very hard to find the motivation to rekindle that childhood awe especially with the busy lives that we lead, but some places, such as Hyde Park, makes it possible.
Hyde Park in the winter features Winter Wonderland, a festive event from November to January that is free for all and includes a Christmas market, a skating rink, and many other Christmas-themed activities.
To make the most out of the event, keep in mind the following:
Buy Tickets In Advance
While the event is free for all, you may need to buy tickets in advance for some of their featured activities such as ice skating, Zippos Circus, and the Giant Observation Wheel. See if you can purchase these tickets ahead as they usually get fully booked right away.
There are many hotels like the Shaftesbury Premier London Paddington Hotel, that could accommodate you and your loved ones around Hyde Park. It would be best to stay close to the area so you can come home to a warm duvet quicker, and so you can really enjoy the experience. The luxurious treat of a hotel stay can help you relax and forget your worries.
Learn to Enjoy the Weather
It’s an open air event so expect it to be cold, so make sure to get wrapped up in a warm coat, gloves, hat, and a scarf. Also, while the weather can get really chilly, it is the best atmosphere to hold on to your loved ones. Whether it is your children or your special other, bring them along so you can enjoy the cool air with them.
Don’t Miss the Features
Winter has a magical feel to it, and Hyde Park resonates of this vibe during Winter Wonderland. Try the Magical Ice Kingdon for a story book worthy White Christmas world, or the Giant Observation Wheel for a comfortable yet exhilarating experience on a pod 60 metres above ground where you can enjoy magical London in all its glory.
Make bringing out your inner child an annual habit. Once a year, make it a point to inspire wonder in yourself so you can have creativity and energy back into your life. A well deserved vacation can do the trick, and it helps to do it in a place that makes relaxation easy, just like Hyde Park. After all, it was once said – “The great man is he who does not lose his child’s-heart.”
