Twixmas! Winter Wonderland + pub! :-)

  • Winter Wonderland, Wonderbar (F1 on Wonderland map),

    Hyde Park near Speaker's Corner, W2 2ET, London (map)

  • TUBE: Marble Arch, BUS: there are many busses that go to Marble Arch, from all directions.
  • Santa’s Elves have assisted your Dear Leader in cooking-up a merry tour of Winter Wonderland, that takes-in all the sites and rides, while providing a few anchor-points, at which to find us.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkFP0VwpPRY

    After the rigours (?) of the "Haunted House Mansion" and the "Carousel", a yuletide tincture in the "Arctic Lodge Bar" will provide a refreshing rest and rendezvous.  Then, a few mince-pies or your Christmassy snack of choice later, in a saunter down the “Street Food Market”, we can relax in the Bavarian glow of the Giant-with-bird, as we take-in a drink at the “Bavarian Village Bar”, to the charming sounds of a German man in a cage, singing pop-music ♪♫ ♪.  Oh the wonders of Christmas!

    It should be a laugh and then we’re off to the pub, "The Three Tuns"!  All guidelines and directions are optional, i.e. come to the parts that you like and do whatever you want in-between!

    7.25pm - 7.45pm:  "Haunted House Mansion" and "Traditional Carousel" (18 and 19 on the map).  The Haunted Mansion is a hilarious ghost train, for £6/6 tokens (WELL WORTH IT!) and the gentle Christmassy carousel is £3/3 tokens, (also WELL WORTH IT!).  Have a ride, before earning your drink!!!, which we’ll have at the

    • 7.45pm - 8.15pm:  "Arctic Lodge Bar" (F6 on map). This is such a likeable place, with all kinds of sitting and standing areas, snacks, a great vibe and a view of a mini-stage!

    Then, 8.15pm-8.30pm:   "Street Food Market" (51 on map).  Take your drink from the Arctic Lodge Bar with you, as we saunter through the enormous and mouth-watering Street Food Market and cave-into a few mouth-watering snacks, and we find ourselves at the
