From the must-see winter light trails in Wales, Welsh Christmas markets, Christmas shows in Cardiff, and all the amazing winter things to do with family this Christmas, here are some of our favourite Christmas events in Wales for 2023. 

Wales is so beautiful in winter. The landscape changes, the Christmas lights come on, and sometimes there's even a bit of snow transforming the towns and cities into Welsh Christmas markets and winter wonderlands.

There's a reason why Swansea Winter Wonderland and Cardiff Winter Wonderland have been our favourite Christmas things to do in Wales for generations. It's when the excitement of Christmas really sets in and we can begin making some Christmas memories that will last a lifetime.
