Christmas Shopping in Southern Wales

christmas marketWith only a month to go until Christmas it's time to hit the shops and get all those presents for family and friends.  And in Southern Wales there's plenty of choice.

There are two out of town designer outlets.  In the heart of the valleys is Festival Park near Ebbw Vale.  There are over 40 shops for you to explore as well as a café and restaurant for you to relax and recharge your batteries.

Just north of Bridgend, on junction 36 of the M4 motorway is the Bridgend Designer Outlet.  There are over 90 high-street and designer brands with up to 60% off and unbeatable discounts all year round.

Cardiff meanwhile is a magnet for shopaholics.  It's brand new shopping centre and pedestrianised city centre makes shopping a pleasure while the city is criss crossed by a number of Victorian arcades which are home to local, independent shops.  Don't miss the Christmas market either.  Situated in the city's castle quarter, beautifully decked in exquisite decorations, banners and festive lights.  The area is filled with alpine-style wooden chalets and stalls laden with festive foods, hand-crafted, unique Christmas gifts and fortifying glasses of mulled wine.
