Not keen on slogging down Oxford Street battling the tourists to buy your Christmas presents? Head to the German Christmas Market at the Winter Wonderland 2009 for some great ideas. Stuffed with all kinds of traditional Christmas fare, you can treat yourself to a few goodies before loading up for friends and relatives who will be delighted to recieve some unusual gifts.
Alongside the German Market, Winter Wonderland tickets also give you access to plenty of cafes where you can get hot drinks to warm you up after your session on the ice. A perfect sport for the romantic, there's nothing quite like a spot of ice skating before you sip a hot chocolate and watch the other skaters.
See the sights
There are many Christmassy attractions to grab your attention at the Winter Wonderland, but one of the highlights is the giant observation wheel that will give you some of the most amazing views across the city. Look down on the ice rink, the market and across Hyde Park, and enjoy the spectacular views in the winter sunshine. Plenty of fun rides and many other attractions are also at the Winter Wonderland, meaning you can spend all day in the delightful surroundings of this Christmas themed park.
A new addition to this year's Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will be a very special circus from Zippo, who will be putting together a bespoke festive event inside a huge heated big top. So not only will you be able to skate, drink, eat, buy presents and get in the Christmas spirit, you'll be able to enjoy a fantastic circus show too.
