The Silver Mountain Experience set to deliver a magical Christmas

Santa and two of his elves who will be welcoming visitors to The Silver Mountain Experience.

The Silver Mountain Experience, a popular visitor attraction based just outside Aberystwyth, is preparing for the return of its popular Christmas event.

The Elves’ Workshop and Santa’s Grotto at the attraction, located near Ponterwyd, will be opening a weekend earlier this year, due to sell-out success last year.

Running on selected dates from December 11 to 23, visitors will be able to set foot in the busy elves’ workshop, as they prepare for the big day and meet Santa, who will have a present included for all children on the ‘good list’.

There will also be a range of other activities included within the ticket price. Visitors can enjoy Christmas cookie decorating, explore a special Reindeer Trail, the other surface attractions and The Silver Mountain Experience will be lit up in pretty colours as the sun sets.

The Christmas event at The Silver Mountain Experience is pre-book only and each timed slot is for one group only.

Guided tours are being offered at a reduced rate and can be booked on the day of the visit. Visitors can also experience Ultimate Xscape, which has two brand new escape room experiences to try.

The Miner’s Rest Café will be open to everyone, even if they are not visiting any attractions or events.
