Festive Nostalgia- Places to Visit

It’s that time of year again when we pull out our cosy jumpers and wooly hates and start to plan this year’s festive adventures. There are so many great places to visit, so we’ve collected just a few that are guaranteed to give you that warm, nostalgic Christmas feeling.

And to prepare your car for the journey, make sure you pop in to see the friendly folk at Victoria Garage.

Christmas at The Royal Mint

Ynysmaerdy, Pontyclun CF72 8YT

The Royal Mint is once again opening its doors to Santa and his elves! Families can come along to Santa’s workshop and experience a magical, festive tour around the Royal Mint. Children will also have a chance to meet and take a picture with Santa, and then finish the day with a festive treat at the on-site café.

Christmas Markets

Bath and Cardiff city centres

There are loads of Christmas markets to visit, but Bath is particularly famous, running from 24 November to 11 December. It has everything to pull you into the Christmas spirit, with the streets lined with traditional artisan makers and the smell of mince pies and mulled wine filling the city. Of if you’re looking for something closer to home, Cardiff Christmas Market will be running from 10 November to 23 December, with craft stalls, food and drink aplenty, and sparkling Christmas lights. It’s the perfect Christmas outing for the whole family.

Reindeer Lodge

Black Meadows Farm, Mold CH7 4SQ

Looking for something a little bit further a field? Why not take a trip to Reindeer Lodge in Mold. Enjoy a magical drive-thru experience, with woodland-lined lakes, lighting trails and herds of reindeer! There’s also the Elf Villages and the Toy Workshop that are not to be missed! This is the perfect magical day out for the whole family.
