Santa Skate LondonWith Father Christmas busily preparing to make his rounds on Christmas Eve, London will be brimming with imitations this weekend at the Santa Skate event. First run in 2004 it has now turned into the biggest costumed street skate of the year; with more than 400 people skating through London in full Santa get up. Skating for 9 miles, the Santa's will be spreading Christmas cheer and there will be tunes by the musical sleigh sound systems, the LondonSkate BassFrieght and ASBOxes. Taking a leisurely pace through the city, skaters will be able to pause and soak up some of London's best landmarks before stopping for half time mince pies. Then forget the milk as a refreshing accompaniment, once the route is completed skaters can move on to the Serpentine Road Crew Christmas Party for a well deserved tipple. It is of course free to spectate, however to join in on the festive fun donations of 10 are required and tickets can be bought through the website.

About Hyde Park

Technically two different parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are in practical terms one huge, merging expanse. The 'split' dates back to 1728 when Queen Caroline, wife of George II, took almost 300 acres from Hyde Park to form Kensington Gardens. The 350 acres that remained has become one of London's best-loved parks. More about Hyde Park
