Liverpool's Winter Wonderland

Each year, Liverpool puts on the most magical Christmas experience, 'Winter Wonderland'. I was asked to spend the day here and write a post about my experience and boy it didn't disappoint! The city seems to come alive especially during the festive season, from bustling Christmas markets to thrill rides, Ice bars and good food! No matter what age, there is something for everyone! 
We started our festivities by heading over to the HUGE Christmas tree in Liverpool One. Under the tree is a sweet festive bar decked out with a live roaring fire in the middle. Scattered around are places to sit to enjoy a festive drink and wait for it....small huts you can hire and sing karaoke! I don't know about you but I think that would be a great night out for a works Christmas do or a catch up with your friends! I opted for a mulled cider, my Aunt had the same, Mum had a hot chocolate (with an added shot of Baileys) and Alexander had a children's hot chocolate bursting with cream and marshmallows. As it was early afternoon, it wasn't too busy so we got lucky and managed to grab a seat in the hut, sipping our drinks and watching the world go by. 

We soon headed out to the fun fair to let Alexander have some fun! Complete with a carousel, 'hook the penguin' and lots of other fun packed rides, he has the time of his life! Again there is something for every age whether you are wanting thrill seeking or just to let the kids have a good giggle, there's a mix of everything here. If your brave enough, there is even an ice slide! The ice rink was back again this year so make sure you are wrapped up for a good hour of skating! Or if your wanting to watch from the outside, go grab yourself a mulled wine from the many pop up bars scattered around the pier. 
Once we where all satisfied by our rides, skating and the slide, we head on into the Ice Bar! This year we didn't get the foil ponchos which was disappointed but the experience was still enjoyable! With every entry, you get a free shot which is poured into an ice cube, they do juice for the little ones. There was a life size ice sculpture of Elsa this year! I couldn't help slip into fan crazy mode! 


We ended our afternoon by heading to Revolucion De Cuba on the Albert Dock, somewhere I have heard of but never thought to pop in. The restaurant was decor was just fabulous! We where seated in a quite area which suited us. Our waitress Laura greeted us and took us through the menu. With so much choice we opted for the tapas. Each dish was absolutely delicious! We really couldn't fault any of it. We even managed to sneak in a chocolate brownie oh....and a few cocktails to celebrate the festive season. 

If you haven't been for a visit to Liverpool's Winter Wonderland then why not? I can't wait to go back in the evening time for a different experience again.
