Once the city of London began lighting up to celebrate the arrival of the festive month of December, it was time for the annual pilgrimage to the magical world of Winter Wonderland…

As we approached, it seriously felt as though London’s 8 million inhabitants all decided to gather up in this tiny corner of Hyde Park that day, just to have their share of the holiday festivities in the big city. We were told that there was going to be an eternally long queue to enter this holy sanctuary – and they weren’t joking either. After an hour waiting in the freezing cold, we finally managed to cross the barriers to have a glimpse at how Londoners celebrated the arrival of the holiday month.

Objectively speaking, Winter Wonderland was simply an ordinary christmas market coupled with some carnival rides. However, roaming around the place for a while did somehow make me feel like a 8-year-old, lost in this brightly illuminated space, and hypnotised by all the sweets counters and carnival rides. There were countless stalls selling gifts and christmas ornaments but, being a self-professed glutton, the main attraction for me was unsurprisingly the many food counters that offered all sorts of things from marzipan, churros, roasted pork belly, exotic cocktails to the more traditional options of hot dogs and mulled wine. It was really difficult not to succumb to the temptation.
