Is that a statement, or a question? The question mark at the end would infer that it is indeed a question, but it reads like a statement.

If it is a question, then Hyde Park has it's own "Christmas fair" with its own carosell, traditional German market stalls, overpriced brattys etc. There's also a couple of bars, entertainment for the kids, and an ice-rink.

Will there be minimum wage student flunkies dressed in penguin suits who can be tripped over for the punters amusement?

It was both,a question and a statement...When does the Hyde park ``Christmas fair`` start?

Somerset house is an excellent location - I'd avoid the Tower of London though for the ice rink - its a bit exposed and can be very nippy when the wind is blowing.

Well I did go to London ... but alas simply couldnt face the Hyde Park thing.... not after Oxford Street, it was horrible... Covent Garden was nice though...the tubes were not...

Well I for one will be avoiding the tower of London (I'm not giving it capitals) in general from now on. I have only just found out it was built by the French. The flaming French. From France.
Much as I love French bread, Nicole from the Renault ads and Le Tour...comin over here, building dark, foreboding strategically placed fortresses on the banks of 'ol Lady Thames?? NO!!
[Wah shield on] It was built by the Normans, not the French! And as we all know from the 'Something you probably didn't know from history' thread, there's a huge difference!![wah shield off]

If that is still a problem for you, however, there's also an ice rink at Hampton Court Palace which was built by the English!

And for those that want to combine skating,and retail therapy,Westfield Shopping Mall has a rink,in the Atrium. Personally,I would do Somerset House,if it's on again this year.

There's one scheduled for Greenwich, in the old college grounds, opposite the Maritime Museum

I should have added............. the O2 Arena as well

Arguably that was also started by the Frogs, the Italians or possibly the Maltese, depending on how you view the Hospitallers! :p
Hardly,Wolsey took a 'shed',and built a palace on,and around it,it was then Hampton Court,Henry V111 'got' it,and it became Hampton Court Palace.

And if you want to split hairs,all the Hospitalers built was a big 'shed',which was eventually leased out. ;-)
