Christmas in Cardiff is often a special time, as it is in many other cities across the UK. The Christmas lights on Cardiff castle, the lights on Queen Street, the Christmas stalls in the Hayes and not forgetting Cardiff’s very own Winter Wonderland all make Christmas in our capital city very special indeed.
So to help give you some ideas of what to do entertain yourselves and the rest of the family over the Christmas holidays, we have come up with a list of things to do in Cardiff this Christmas.
WalesOnline Winter Wonderland
If you are lacking festive spirit or just want to get out and about to do some more Christmas activities, winter wonderland is 100% the place to be! The ice rink is the star attraction and with tickets starting from £9 for adults, £7.50 for youths aged 13 to 16 and £6.50 for children aged 8 to 12, it is a fantastic way to spend a winters evening. Alternatively, you can get a family ticket for just £28!
Entry in to Winter Wonderland for the stores and other attractions is free so you wander round and take in the sights. The other attractions include the Alpine Village, serving authentic German sausage as well as sweet treats such as crepes and the funfair with a variety of rides and games that are suitable for the whole family!
We visited last week and absolutely loved it, so why not head down yourself for a look!

Cardiff Christmas Market
The Cardiff Christmas market has an abundance of stalls that will suit everybody! Perhaps you want to sample some of the food or drink on offer? Why not head over to Churros Ole for some freshly made Churros with chocolate sauce, or maybe for the adults, some locally brewed beer from the guys at Crafty Devil Brewing Ltd?
Hurry though as the market is only there until 23rd December, so we recommend heading down to the Hayes soon to make sure you get to see all of the festive treats on offer!

Santa’s Grotto at Cardiff Castle
It’s not Christmas until you pay Santa a visit, and no matter how old we get here at Kitchen Economy, we still love it!
This year Santa has set up his grotto in the magical Black Tower at Cardiff Castle.
Prices start at £7.50 for a child with a photo and go up to £12 for a child, gift and two photos. Guaranteed to be an experience that your children will never forget, this will add that little bit of magic to Christmas 2015!
For more information and how to book, visit the Cardiff Castle website here.
So as you can see, there are some fantastic activities going in Cardiff this Christmas! Why not wrap up warm and head outside to experience some of those fantastic things!
From everyone here at Kitchen Economy, we hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
