Cardiff's Winter Wonderland

City Hall Lawn

November 7 – January 5


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


Sur La Piste Bar

Sur La Piste bar has two floors and 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.




It’s not just about the skating! Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland has a funfair including a wide range of games and rides, including familiar favourite, the Big Wheel.


Food and Drink

Come and enjoy ‘Après Ski’ at the Sur La Piste Bar located at the heart of Winter Wonderland. Head to the Alpine Village where you can sample heart-warming Mulled Wine or a hot dog from the grill. Fancy something sweet? Freshly made crepes will be available with a variety of tantalising toppings!
