November 18-January 3, London
Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park offers a dazzling combination of fairground rides and attractions, entertainment and market stalls.
A new roller coaster tops the list of adrenalin-inducing rides, while the more sedate Giant Observation Wheel will provide a brilliant view of the fair.
The city's largest outdoor ice-skating rink will surround the park's Victorian bandstand, and at night it will be illuminated by more than 100,000 twinkling lights.
Zippos Circus includes a family show as well as a new extreme show featuring contortionists, aerialists and acrobats.
Kids can visit the big man in Santa Land, while the Angels' Christmas Market offers gifts and culinary delights for everyone.
