Christmas in Cardiff

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland

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

NEW for 2018…

The Drop Tower

The new Drop Tower will take riders a breath taking 90m into the skies, dwarfing all other buildings in Cardiff, and offering terrific views over the city, before dropping them vertically at startling speed to land back on safe ground!

Sur La Piste Bar

The brand new bar, with two floors, is the perfect place to catch up with friends and family over a mulled wine – or just sit back and relax on the sofas while enjoying a hot chocolate. The authentic wooden chalet is guaranteed to get everyone in the festive mood.
