8 Reasons to Visit Cardiff's Winter Wonderland This Year

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland opened on 10th November and it’s here to stay until 3rd January. What does this mean? You’ve got the whole Christmas period, and a bit more, to skate until your heart’s content.

However, that’s not all this spectacular seasonal attraction has to offer. Here you can discover exactly why you should visit Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland this year.

1. You can ride the iconic big wheel and take in the stunning sights of the city…

2. …and enjoy a tasty German hot dog when you fancy a festive bite to eat.

3. Even when it’s raining you can skate thanks to this year’s clear span roof, which is dotted with fairy lights.

4. However, it’s still worth wrapping up warm. There may be a roof this year but you’ll still feel the cold!

5. You can have a whale of a time whizzing down the oh-so-pretty helter skelter…
