Hyde Park Winter Wonderland!

On Thursday evening after work, I took a trip to Green Park to do a little bit of Christmas shopping and to wait for Dan to finish work. Oxford Street has such a nice atmosphere right now. Yes, you still have the grumpy commuters and the 'I-don't-have-any-clue-where-I'm-going' tourists but the Christmas lights and decorations make it look so beautiful and festive.

When Dan finished work, we met up and took a slow walk to the Winter Wonderland which was at Hyde Park. It wasn't as busy as I thought it would be - but people still got in our way! 

We were instantly hit with the gorgeous smell of cooked meat, cinnamon rolls, pancakes and mulled wine.It smelt so yummy and Christmassy!!

Dan had booked us tickets to see the Magical Ice Kingdom which was set at -10 degrees. It was absolutely freeeeeezing! But the sculptures were literally amazing - and huge.

We were so impressed with the life-size castle-palace, but it became even better when there was a slide to go down!! Dan had an awesome time sliding down that!

Right at the end was a pretty awesome ice bar. Everything was done to a really high standard and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

Of course, we didn't leave without buying a Christmas tree decorations, warm mulled wine and hot chocolate. Yum!
