Every year Hyde Park hosts London’s biggest Christmas market, Winter Wonderland. Now in its 12th year, the market has become a landmark event for Londoners and tourists alike, offering endless entertainment for all ages. Only a short walk away from The Hari, Winter Wonderland will be open from 23rd November 2018 until 6th January 2019, from 10am to 10pm.
Ice skating is always top of the Christmas to-do list in London. Some of the best are housed in London’s most iconic locations, including Somerset House and The Tower of London. Our personal favourite, and closest to home, is the magnificent Natural History Museum, which is just around the corner from the hotel.
Just a stone’s throw from The Hari, the iconic Royal Albert Hall enjoys a festive makeover in the countdown to Christmas to create an enchanting experience of music, dance, film, comedy, and much more.
See the capital’s famous Norwegian Christmas tree standing tall in Trafalgar Square over the festive season. Why not also sing carols around the tree during one of a series of concerts held in London’s famous square?
