Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland

9th November, 2017 - 7th January, 2018

The highlight of Christmas in the city has to be Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland. This festive treat is set on City Hall Lawn within the stunning setting of Cardiff’s iconic civic centre.

This year will see the return of the clear span roof to skate in all weathers whilst allowing sparkling views of City Hall and the night sky.

New for 207/18

Relaxed accessibility sessions are now available, music will be played at low level, lighting will be static, and the capacity of the rink will be reduced to allow those who may need additional support to enjoy the experience. There is also a disabled viewing platform, enhanced signage and site accessibility

 Fun Skate Penguins

There is a limited supply of Penguins available to rent and height restrictions apply.  Penguins are available to be booked in advance, this is recommended, as availability cannot be guaranteed on the day. The Penguins are designed as a fun item only, and are not offered as an aid to skating. They are hired out at management’s discretion at £5.00 per Penguin, per session.  There are no refunds on any Penguin rentals.

Rink side attractions

It’s not just about the skating, this festive attraction has something for all the family to enjoy.

The best way to see Cardiff this Christmas is from the top of the Capital Big Wheel, from the top passengers will be able to spot sights like Cardiff Castle, Bute Park and the Principality Stadium.

No advanced booking necessary, simply purchase your tickets from the box office prior to take off!

A host of traditional rides surround the ice rink including the ever popular Helter Skelter and Penguin Party Ride.

Alpine Village

Come and enjoy some ‘Après Skate’ at the Bierkeller Bar and sample a heart-warming Glühwein or refreshing German Beer.

The authentic chalets offer delicious treats including German sausages cooked on a traditional swing grill and freshly made crepes in an atmosphere guaranteed to get everyone in the festive mood.

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