Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is a festive extravaganza and a must for most die-hard Christmas fanatics.
But, how do you navigate the magic and madness of Winter Wonderland with a baby? Let’s find out.
Arriving on a Tuesday at 11am, buggy in tow, we went to explore. Our first stop? Santa Land.
Exploring Santa Land
Santa Land is perfect with a young baby. Visually, there’s so much to see and plenty to do!
Santa’s Grotto is free so do not miss the opportunity to get that perfect first Santa meet snap. You even get a little present to take with you!
There’s even a Santa Land Family Chill Space that you can escape to for quiet feeding or soothing if necessary. There’s also plenty of baby changing facilities around.
Are there many baby suitable activities?
As far as baby suitable activities, there are a fair few! Theo got to meet Santa, had a ride on the carousel, and could have enjoyed a go on the big wheel!
We were tempted by The Magical Kingdom but at -10 degrees, it didn’t seem too wise.
Do note, there are no places to store buggies. So, if you’re planning on visiting with a baby in tow, I’d advise doing so with a few people so there’s always someone who can keep an eye on it.
Is Winter Wonderland good with a baby?
So, is Winter Wonderland good with a baby? I have to be honest, we had an amazing time.
If you go midweek and during the day, it should be a breeze. It’s not too busy and far easier to navigate with a buggy.
Although you may have to avoid some festivities while you’re there, such as ice sculptures and drinking mulled wine in excess, there’s still plenty to keep everyone entertained!
Finally, if you’re looking to make your baby’s first Christmas truly magical, look no further than Winter Wonderland – and don’t forget to go and see Santa!
