Time for a rest
After a surprisingly long walk from the Museums to the Serpentine it was time for a crafty pint before visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
Winter Wonderland was entering its final evening in Hyde Park and was much less busy, not helped by rain showers I suspect either - but was impressive. Lots to see and do, even if we didn't do any of the rides.
The Big Wheel
Towering high above Winter Wonderland was the big ferris wheel.
The Alpen Hotel
So bright you could hand-hold a shot at 100 ISO here, this was a HDR shot though to bring out the details in the building more clearly. A big adventure ground for all ages this was.
Hyde Park attracts some strange animals - this polar bear was standing guard over one of the many rides in the Winter Wonderland.
Fire bursts from the Haunted Mansion as the car is hung from the tracks. For extra effect someone was getting on and off the carriages as they moved to provide the complete scaring experience.
