Winter Wonderland 2018

It is less than a week until Christmas. EEK! Seriously, where is the time going! Anyway, the weekend just gone I went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park with my Boyfriend, his Mum and her friend. I had a fantastic time which I am going to share with you in today’s post. Hopefully you feel festive at the end of this post!

For those of you who have not heard of Winter Wonderland it is an extravagant Christmas Fairground with rides, food, market stalls and shows.

Most of the market and food stands where in Wooden Huts covered in Christmas lights which looked very festive. When we first arrived I got a Hot Chocolate from Hotel Chocolat to help combat the cold. It was so gorgeous. Just like drinking liquid chocolate!! 

We wondered around the market, admiring the beautiful gifts and drooling at the food, before going on the ferris wheel. It was sponsored by Google Assistant so you could get a free hot chocolate. From the top you can see Winter Wonderland (of course!) and parts of London including the London Eye. 

Afterwards we went to Loaded Fries (one of the food trucks) and had the most delicious melted cheese fries I have ever had! So incredible, I went back for seconds later on! Shhh the calories down count its Christmas. Right?

Later on we went to see The Magical Forest which was filled with spectacular ice sculptures! It was freezing but totally worth it! 

By the time we left the ice sculptures it was dark which was my favourite time as all the lights are lit up. We went to play some classic fun fair games which now most take accept contactless is dangerous. I won three adorable stuffed toys.

So that was my day in Winter Wonderland! Have you been before? Would you like to go? 

I would also love to hear what similar events are near you!
