Cardiff's Winter Wonderland

15th November – 6th January
City Hall Lawn

Christmas in Cardiff isn’t complete without a visit to Winter Wonderland.

Fun Skate Penguins

Look out for the penguins! The fun penguins are designed to help younger children enjoy the ice with confidence (suitable for children under 1.2m and should not be used as an aid for skating – subject to availability).

It’s free to enter the Winter Wonderland event site, but there is a charge for additional activities. To avoid disappointment it’s advised that visitors book ice skating tickets in advance at cardiffswinterwonderland.com

Opening Times:

Please collect your skates 15 minutes prior to the start of your skating session.
