There is something magical about Christmas in the winter. Coming from a country south of the equator, you get a real understanding of how this tradition has come about.
The sky is grey, the sun sets at 4pm. It could all be very depressing. Thus the perfect time for a festival of light, colour, family and good times.
It was packed but everyone was in good spirits- particularly after the mulled wine, which was divine.
Wonderland is full of rides, hot food and markets stalls. A perfect way to get into the festive mood. We likened it to the Easter show but nicer.
These are hot potato crisps fresh from the fryer - amazing! Particularly as some chips still had a soft potato centre. Garlic salt was a option but we kept to plain salt as we were sharing with little ones.
German sausages roasting over hot coals, crunchy buns warming on top to make the best hot dogs ever
German gingerbread - one was bought for a Christmas surprise but it didn't last the tube ride home. Chewy, sweet and delicious
By 3.30pm the crowds were getting massive so we called it a day. Such a wonderful experience, we went with a 4 year old and 10 year old who had a brilliant time. Recommend it to anyone who finds themselves in London Town at Christmas time.
