ANOTHER cancellation related to coronavirus has happened - with the latest victim being the ice walk in Cardiff Castle.

It was due to open on Thursday, November 12 but today, Tuesday, November 17, a statement was issued by the organisers of the Cardiff and Swansea ice walks to announce that they would not be going ahead this year.


The statement reads: "Following updated public health advice received from the office of Wales’ Chief Medical Officer over the weekend, it has been decided that the ice walk attractions, which were due to open in both Cardiff and Swansea city centres will remain closed to the public.

"Both local authorities appreciate the disappointment this will create for residents and would like to apologise for any inconvenience this will cause. However, the safety of everyone during the pandemic remains our main concern and it’s important we follow the latest scientific evidence. Anyone who has booked and paid for a slot on an Ice Walk will receive a full refund from the organisers. Customers do not need to do anything to activate the refund - it will be applied automatically and you will receive a confirmation email once your refund has been processed. Once processed, please be aware that it could take up to 5 days to show in your account.

"The food and drink elements are already open. It is anticipated that other aspects of the Christmas attractions will open in both cities over the next few days. More details of the Christmas attractions in Cardiff and Swansea can be found at and"
