From Santa's Grotto in the Medieval Museum to a Georgian Christmas in the Bishop's Palace, a toy museum, Winterval Express Santa Train, ice-rink and an animal farm complete with reindeer, Winterval is set to be a highlight in the Christmas calendar that every family will want to experience. Look forward to craft making for children, an artisan food fair, a Viking Yuletide village, storytelling in Reginald's Tower, a Polish Christmas, and a spectacular 3D sound and light show and Christmas Market in Cathedral Square.
