What a Cracker of a Christmas it’s going to be in Swansea!

Get ready for marching bands, magical floats, festive film characters, Christmas inflatables and of course Santa and his sleigh, as they will all be making an appearance at this year’s Swansea Christmas Parade and Lights Switch On, in Swansea City Centre on Sunday 17th November.

Swansea Christmas Market also returns with a range of talented crafters, traders and delicious street food vendors that will be offering a brilliant selection of unique gifts, tempting treats and beautiful decorations at the Swansea Christmas Market.

Some chalets will host a selection of new traders and crafters each week, so there’s always something different to see. The cosy festive bar and seating area offers the perfect opportunity to unwind with a mulled wine, a German craft beer or a delicious Kolle Kusse whilst you soak up the atmosphere.

The children will love a visit to Santa’s Grotto in association with Smyths Toy Superstores on Portland Street so you’ll be sure that the whole family has a great day out!

For all the ingredients of your perfect Christmas, look no further than Swansea Market! You’ll find superb service, fresh tasty food, beautiful decorations, seasonal cards, gifts and more.

Swansea City Centre is your one stop shop to check off that Christmas list! There’s late night shopping at many stores throughout the Christmas season and Swansea Market will be open every Sunday in December.

But of course it’s not all about the shopping! Whether it’s a coffee or a cocktail you fancy, there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can stop and re-fuel.

A Swansea Christmas just wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Waterfront Winterland. You visited in your thousands to enjoy the undercover ice rink at Swansea’s award winning winter attraction last year. Once again, Museum Green will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland.
