The 'Switch-On' of Cardiff Christmas Lights 2022

Walk with us through Cardiff City Centre and the Castle grounds to see the dazzling Christmas illuminations in our beautiful Welsh capital city. Furthermore, The Mother of Grom 'Cardiff Christmas City Guide' will assist you in your own city centre festive quest.

It truly begins to feel festive ...

when the moment arrives, and it's time for your local Christmas lights to be turned on. And when Cardiff's Christmas decorations light-up the city it is no exception. Far from it - it's one of the best in the UK.

Wrapping up warm and gathering with my family - is always one of my fondest memories of this time of the year. The joy, excitement and spectacle has become a firm tradition with my children and something they cherish and look forward to.


On Tuesday 15th November the illuminatations will light up the season. Brighter. Better. And more dazzling than ever. Winter Wonderland will open its merry doors for another year, and the bustling Christmas Market and Festive Quarter will already be underway. 


There's a new video on my Youtube channel which i've added at the bottom of this post (showing what we got up to when we visited the city this week) and I've compiled a list of things to see and do in the Cardiff City Centre to help you maximise your time in Wales' stunning capital this Christmas time.
