Welcome to the most wondrous of winter wonderlands in town….

Christmas may have passed, but Winterland London is here to stay. Besides, who needs the holidays as an excuse for a night in an enchanted forest with curling lanes, mini-golf, prosecco-pong, riverside igloos, cosy winter lodges, fur-lined sofas, long feasting tables, hot toddies, wood-fired pizzas, Jimmy Garcia’s fondues, raclette burgers, croque monsieurs…should we go on?

Flower Covered Igloos at Winterland

Flower covered igloo

Winterland’s flower adorned, heated igloos accommodate up to 8 people and are more than accommodating in terms of stunning Thames views. What better setting to sip on a beverage from the Winterland bar? Choose from a selection of hot winter cocktails, regular cocktails, wine, prosecco, champagne and beer.  For extra cosy kicks, go for hot chocolate (with cream, marshmallows and Baileys if you choose) or a shared thermos of hot, spiced mulled wine for your igloo-crew. Prices from £95 per igloo.

Other booking options include Winter Lodges for up to 10 people (from £60), fur covered sofas for groups of up to 15 people (under a heated stretch tent, from £95) and feating tables in the pergola lodge, ideal for 2 – 18 people (with general entry tickets for £5).

Once you’re warmed up, whether by igloo or fur sofa method, you’ll be ready for a Winterland activity. Book in advance to ensure your slot for ping-pong (£10 per half hour), beer pong (£20 per hour- although alcohol is not included), mini golf (£5 per round), curling (£40 per half hour). For extra special occasions, book the karaoke booth for a 2 hour slot for up to 10 people (£139).
