Winterville – a photo guide

Last updated on November 30th, 2018 at 03:47 pm

A favourite Christmas destination, Winter Wonderland is no stranger to Londoners and tourists. However, this year a rival festive fair has started in East London, rising in Victoria Park. Intrigued by this alternative, I treked allk the way across East London to investigate this new destination, wondering how different it could be to Winter Wonderland.

 

Winterville First Impression

At first glance on their website, Winterville appears to have everything Winter Wonderland has and more. However, it is in fact much smaller than expected, with a selection of rather disappointing, small fairground rides and an equally unremarkable ice rink. If what you want to experience is the Christmas vibes, go on rides and take festive photos, then Winter Wonderland is a much better choice. Winterville, however, has a small, non-touristy marketplace of traders, food halls, roller disco, and an entertainment tent for those who are not so keen on rides and enjoy food, then this is the place to go.

Here are some photos of Winterville for you to get an idea of what’s the place is like. After all a picture is worth a thousand words:

Here’s me binging on Churros, which only costs 4 pounds, and comes with chocolate dips 🙂

For those who don’t know what it is, it’s kind of like fried bread stripe coated with sugar. We also brought some chips from Holy Cow, which only costs 2 pounds and are well seasoned.

I didn’t do much in Winterville apart from eating. Originally I wanted to go on the Roller Disco, however, my sister wasn’t very keen on that. Even though the ring doesn’t look too big, roller skating disco still looked quite fun.
