Skating in a Winter Wonderland

Winter’s well and truly here with Cardiff’s open air ice rink. Permission from Sarah Garvey.

Wrap up warm, breathe in the cold, crisp air and prepare to put on a pair of skates; this year’s Winter Wonderland is on its way. On 22 November, the Admiral Ice Rink will open on City Hall Lawn to kick off the festive season.   

Skating is just one option; warm up with mulled wine at the Ice Café Bar, enjoy the traditional fair or greet Bjorn the polar bear. Those who are brave enough can sit in one of the 16 two-person swings of the 60 metre high Star Ride, which gives a panoramic view of the whole city.

Cabinet Member for Sport, Culture and Leisure, Cllr Huw Thomas said, “Cardiff Winter Wonderland really marks the start of the Christmas countdown in the city”.
