What to expect in Cardiff at Christmas

Cardiff has plenty of magical festive experiences to enjoy, including the Ice Rink and Christmas Markets, all against the backdrop of twinkling lights.

Inside the Castle you’ll find Cardiff Winter Wonderland Ice Rink and the open air Ice Walk, giving everyone a chance to get their skates on, plus you’ll find outdoor seating in an Alpine themed (yet heated) area along with food and drink stalls including a marshmallow firepit! Outside the Castle you’ll find the Christmas in Bute Park Light Trail, as well as Cardiff Christmas Market, festive funfair rides on Castle Street and of course the magical ambience of Cardiff’s Victorian and Edwardian arcades.
