Bodnant Gardens is the perfect place to enjoy some well-deserved festive family fun in the lead up to the big day.
Explore the grounds of this stunning National Trust garden by embarking on either the long ‘Robin’s Secret Trail’ or shorter, step free ‘Lantern Trail to the Dell’. These trails are free (excluding normal garden entry costs) and self-led, leaving you to discover the beauty of Bodnant for yourself!
After your winter stroll, head over to the Elves’ Workshop to get the kids involved in some festive arts and crafts. The Elves will be on hand to help them make some fantastic decorations that are sure to be on display around your house in years to come. These workshops will be run on the first 3 weekends of December and are free. However, it is recommended that you turn up early as the workshops fill up fast.
The kids can also take part in some Christmas cookie decorating and pay a visit to Santa in his Grotto- there is still time to get on the Nice List!
