The Christmas season is rapidly drawing closer and there are many fun and festive events happening in North Wales in November and December.
We have compiled a list of some of the exciting events and Christmas Markets in North Wales this winter.
Saturday 30th Nov – Sunday 22nd Dec
This Christmas, Greenwood Park is hosting a 2 hour twilight adventure set in one of North Wales’ finest attractions. This promises to be an event not to be missed.
There will be gingerbread making, elves and even the main man himself, Father Christmas will be on hand for a festive selfie.
Book your tickets now with prices at £20 per child and £7 per adult. More information can be found on their website.
Saturday 7th Dec – Sunday 22nd Dec
If the idea of seeing Santa on a steam train piques your interest, then this is the event for you. Hop on one of the many ‘Santa Trains’ running throughout December to make the most of this fun festive treat – the kids will love it (taking children along is, of course, optional!).
Trains will be departing from Caernarfon and will journey through Snowdonia National Park. There will even be opportunities for photos with Santa and his elves along the way. Plus Mum and Dad will receive a glass of sherry and mince pie – what’s not to love!
For more information and to book your tickets, visit their website.
Saturdays & Sundays now until Sunday 22nd Dec
Visit the gorgeous Bodnant Gardens this December and enter into the Elves’ workshop to make some festive gifts.
There will be food and also marshmallows by the fire. There will also be trails and walks to follow, and you can also pop into the garden centre to see Santa as well.
Get your creative juices flowing this festive season. Christmas is such a magical time, make sure you head down to Bodnant Gardens to celebrate.
Friday 6th Dec – Sunday 8th Dec
Another annual event that just keeps growing. Portmeirion is worth a visit without this event, but why not take a trip during the run-up to Christmas to get even more out of it?
There will be over 120 exhibitors this year at the festival featuring seasonal demos in the Pavillion using the best local produce. There is also seasonal entertainment, mulled wine (yum!) and so much more to look forward to. Father Christmas will, of course, be making an appearance!
Saturday 7th Dec – Sunday 8th Dec
They will be kicking off their festive weekend with a classic drive-in movie showing some of Christmas classics such as Elf and The Grinch. (Friday & Saturday only). More information can be found on their website.
For this year they will be bringing you a totally weatherproof indoor festive market. There will be plenty of good-quality stalls and plenty of food to keep you satisfied. And its FREE entry… I guess we’ll see you there!
