Security Update for Hyde Park Winter Wonderland 2017

Security Update for Hyde Park Winter Wonderland 2017

Winter Wonderland

The Royal Parks has informed us that additional security measures will be put in place during this year’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.

In light of events across the U.K. and the world, the Metropolitan Police Service have reviewed and requested that hostile vehicle mitigation measures are put in place across the Park to protect those attending Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. It is important to stress that there is no change to the current security threat, but it was felt that additional mitigation is important to reduce all possible risks at this time.

The Metropolitan Police Service has emphasised that the hostile vehicle mitigation measures are a precautionary measure and are not in relation to any specific intelligence.

Please be advised that hostile vehicle mitigation measures will be implemented at the north of the Parade Ground, Main Street (the long footpath which runs south from Cumberland Gate) and throughout Serpentine Road in Hyde Park to safely facilitate and deliver Hyde Park Winter Wonderland 2017.

As in previous years, South Carriage Drive will be subject to closures at peak times during the event for crowd safety purposes. The usual Sunday road closures will be in place.

The Royal Parks are extremely grateful for our ongoing support.
