25 Things to do this Christmas

 

 

On the twenty fourth day of Christmas Me myself and Khai gave to me Winter wonderland in Hyde Park.

 

At Hyde Park not very well hidden amongst the trees is the Christmastime attraction winter wonderland.  Once you enter you’ll be enveloped by countless wonderful fairground rides, food outlets, and Father Christmas grotto over in Santa land, the Christmas market, enormous Observational Wheel, two circuses Zippos Christmas circus and Cirque Extreme, ice skating rink.

 

The fair ground rides start at £2 which equals two tokens which can be purchased and the many ticket booths. The wheel, circuses and ice rink range from around £10 for an adult and £5.50 a child (this by the way is just a rough estimate).

   

There is something for everyone it has such a great atmosphere.  Everything is child friendly and winter wonderland is free of charge to enter.

 

At night this place looks beautiful all lit up and sparkly.  We had a great time even though it rained form the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

We will be going again next year that’s for sure!

until 3rd jan

25 Thing to do this Christmas

On the eighteenth day of Christmas me myself and Khai gave to me  Covent Garden’s Christmas display.

Khai and I went to Covent Garden today to look at the beautiful display of twinkling lights and large red and mirrored baubles decorating the market.

The market was buzzing with the many people doing their Christmas shopping, street artist were ever present, there where mimes, Santa’s, jugglers and so on. 

Khai was not impressed with santa he imformed me that “this is not santa mummy he doesn’t have a red nose”.

In the east piazza there is an amazing 15 foot reindeer made from topiary and covered in clear lights, that is apart from it large red nose.

The west piazza boast an incredible Christmas tree seated in a large terracotta pot wrapped in the biggest bow and dressed in red shiny bauble.

There is so much to do and see there!  However khai and I unfortunately didn’t stay very long as he wanted to go back on the tube and began to moan, so we left with a few Christmas gifts and lots of Christmas spirit.
