From Louise:
In recent years I have visited the Winter Wonderland in the past and have loved it! I can’t wait to go back this year. I love Christmas and everything about it. There is something at the Winter Wonderland for everyone. If you are planning to stay there for the whole day which is a must to fit everything in, make sure you wrap up warm. There is always a mulled wine available for the adults to keep warm.

So much to see and do:
