A few years ago we started our family tradition of visiting the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park London. Coming from Czech background I always love the special atmosphere at Xmas markets and all the German/Austrian food on offer, which by the way is very similar to what you would get at a Xmas market in the Czech Republic.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland runs for 6 weeks from Friday 17th November 2017 – Monday 1st January 2018, with four new shows set to take to its stages: Cinderella on Ice, Zippos Christmas Circus presents Lights, Camera, Action; Cirque Berserk – ‘Rebellion’ and The Sooty Christmas Show.
Last Sunday we were invited to review the Sooty Christmas Show & the Zippos Christmas Circus, and we all could not wait.
The Sooty Christmas Show
The Sooty Christmas Show shows every day at 11am. Joining the nation’s favourite bear will be Sweep, Soo and TV’s Richard Cadell as they try to stage their own Christmas talent spectacular but as expected nothing quite goes to plan.
A mix of magic, music and plenty of audience participation, The Sooty Christmas Show is an unmissable festive giggle for Sooty fans old and new. We had a nice giggle and would highly recommend to the younger audience.
Zippos Christmas Circus presents
Lights, Camera, Action!
The ever-popular show is guaranteed fun from start to finish and boasts an array of the world’s finest circus acts in the UK’s biggest circus tent.
Breathtaking acrobats, knockabout comedy and stunning illusions will leave the whole family entertained. Joining the host of circus artists will be giant dancing snow bears, courtesy of Britain’s Got Talent finalist Vadik and the Bears.
Who wouldn’t love singing along “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice….. happy memories indeed!

You might know me behind my fitness blog Fitness 4 Mamas, where I often blog about how to keep fit. I was stunned with the performance of the Cuban Revolution troupe, extreme contortion from Juma. They were just amazing!
My heart was beating extra fast when I was watching the Italian artist skipping on top of this giant metal wheel high up in the air. There were a few seconds I was so worried, I closed my eyes! Of course he did not fall and had a massive applause from the audience!
As well as Cinderella on Ice, Zippos Christmas Circus, Cirque Berserk and The Sooty Christmas Show, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland hosts many new and returning attractions including the UK’s largest outdoor Ice Rink, Europe’s largest indoor ice and snow sculpture experience The Magical Ice Kingdom Deep Sea Adventure, The Giant Observation Wheel, Bar Ice, over 150 chalets in the Angels Christmas Market, the world’s largest transportable rollercoaster Munich Looping, alongside food and drink throughout including Bar Hütte, a unique take on ‘Alpine
Make sure you pay the Winter Wonderland a visit soon, and wrap up warm! Plan ahead as there are so many amazing things to do and see, and let me know how your day was!
