City Hall lawns, Civic Centre

The highlight of Christmas in the city has to be Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland. This festive treat is set on Cardiff’s City Hall Lawn, within the stunning setting of Cardiff’s iconic civic centre, from November to January.

What will you find at Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland?

With foodie treats such as traditional German Bratwurst and mulled wine; fun-filled amusement games; exhilarating rides; and ice skating it truly is wonderful. This year will see the return of the clear span roof to skate in all weathers whilst allowing sparkling views of city hall and the night sky.

Relaxed accessibility sessions will also be available making this event inclusive for all.
