Park is nice. But the rides at winter wonderland are a rip off, £6+ to go on a ride is way too much but the place is still nice just too expensive and a few of the staff look like they don't want to be there.

Very big very busy a lot of things to do and look at book in advance if you can for the attractions if not you can buy your ride tokens there. Great Christmas cabins selling all things seasonal great visit

Hyde Park in the winter is very fun. Winter Wonderland is up and running with something for everyone. I enjoy the ice sculptures and ice performance but there is something for all ages. Rides. Bands. Food galore. Market stalls.

Awesome park in central London. Great for a walk and for a coffee by the lake. A must visit in London. You can take a beautiful route starting from Marble Arch towards the palace. You can stop to feed the ducks or grab a coffee along the way. Have fun!
