Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland, the capital’s biggest Winter attraction, is back from 15th November – 8th January!

With summer now over, planning for winter festivities across the city is underway, and Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland has announced their biggest ever event layout is back. 2021 saw the event split across two locations to maximise festive fun, and this successful layout will return this year, ensuring the biggest Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland ever seen is here to stay. Visitors can again enjoy the festivities at both City Hall Lawns and Cardiff Castle, two locations at the heart of Cardiff City Centre.

In what has proven to be a hugely popular feature, Cardiff Castle will once again be home to the ice skating, which includes the beautiful, covered ice rink and magical 150m open-air ice walk, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Norman keep.

Winter Wonderland

The Castle will also be home to numerous food vendors, where visitors can enjoy a delicious Yorkshire pudding wrap, or have fun toasting marshmallows over an open fire with friends. These tasty treats can be enjoyed at the new and extended seating area, with improved views of the skating.

At Cardiff City Hall

Over at City Hall, visitors can enjoy the bright lights and sounds of the rides and attractions or ride the Big Wheel offering some of the best views of the city. The food and drink choice doesn’t stop either, with new vendors to grab a hot chocolate, mulled wine, or German sausage from on a cold winter’s night.

Cardiff’s only Ice Bar is also back this season, this time with increased capacity of 40 people per session, as well as new venue hire options for work Christmas parties or birthday celebrations. This year, the bar will also be offering Funkin cocktails alongside its previous selection of beer, prosecco, and flavoured vodka shots.

Equally popular, Sur La Piste, the alpine ski bar will return in its extended format giving cosy après-ski vibes. New for 2022, its outdoor roof terrace will now be home to all live entertainment, serenading us through to Christmas.
