Do you like the magic of Christmas? So welcome to London! The British capital is the ideal destination for Christmas markets. Some are real amusement parks offering many activities to share with friends or family: merry-go-round, rink, Santa Claus cave… Here is a selection of the most beautiful Christmas markets to visit absolutely!

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

Winder Wonderland is a real amusement park that concentrates many activities to share with the family.

In addition to the traditional Christmas market, there is the largest ice rink in the United Kingdom, a Ferris wheel, ice sculptures but also shows, roller coasters, carousels and even an ice bar!

Finally, the little ones will be happy to meet Santa Claus who will receive them in his cave!

And if after all these attractions you feel hungry, it is even possible to eat or drink at one of the many stalls.

If you have to visit only one Christmas market in London, I recommend that you visit this one which will dazzle you with both its illuminations and its magical atmosphere.

On the strength of its international reputation and success, it is recommended to book your activities.

Price: Access to Winter Wonderland free but the activities are not free.
