London’s annual Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park has been canceled due to coronavirus.

In a statement, organizers said: “Dear Hyde Park Winter Wonderland Family,

“It is with a heavy heart that we share that Hyde Park Winter Wonderland will not take place this year.

“Hyde Park Winter Wonderland has always been about bringing friends and family together in a fun, safe and interactive environment to celebrate the holiday season.

“Our team worked tirelessly, exploring all possible options in the hopes that we could move the event forward in a responsible manner and give London much needed festive joy.

“However, in light of the continuing health issues, travel restrictions and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and given the size and scale of this event, we simply couldn’t find a way to do this without compromising the magical attractions, shows, rides, bars and experiences that make Hyde Park Winter Wonderland so special.

“We know how disappointing this will be for the millions of people we usually welcome every season. And we can assure you that we share your disappointment that you put in a lot of work, sweat, and even a few tears in trying to make this year’s event possible.

“Thank you very much for your continued support and stay safe. We can’t wait to bring friends and family together to celebrate the holiday season at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in 2021. ”

Winter Wonderland, which offers fairground rides as well as food and Christmas markets, has been held in the capital since 2007.
