It stopped snowing this weekend and the temperatures rose to a balmy 5°C, so Panu and I decided to go check out the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. It was rather grey and gloomy though, and threatened to rain, but we focused on the task at hand: bratwursts, chips and hot chocolates!
The Winter Wonderland is pretty great for little kids and big kids alike. We go for the food, they go for the fair. Same same, right?
… drenched in mayonnaise and ketchup!
So many options. Where to go?
Bavarian Village, anyone?
Or maybe just a bratwurst.
I wanted pig, but the queue was LONG.
Mushrooms drowned in garlic sauce. SO delicious.
Roasted chestnuts everywhere. This old man was particularly cute.
Galaxy hot chocolate with cream… is there any other way?
When you’re done eating, check out the entertainment. There are games and rides and gift shops and even an ice skating rink. I would skate but I totally suck at it 🙁
The Winter Wonderland is located at the Hyde Park Corner side of the park. If you’ve got time, go check it out – it’s open 10am to 10pm every day until January 4 2011, so plan it and do it.
Seriously, especially if you have kids? Totally use them as an excuse to go 😉
ps. I’m off to New York on Monday for work for two weeks. Yes I know, life’s hard 😉 Blog ya from the other end!
