Where to Go in Chepstow for Christmas

When people think of Chepstow, they see an old-fashioned little town near the border of England and Wales. As one of Wales’ oldest towns, it is a town that is associated with history and culture by tourists everywhere. You can’t blame them; after all, between the Chepstow castle and the old stone pathways, one might think we’re outdated and passé.

However, Chepstow is anything but that. In fact, the entire town is always abuzz with events and get-togethers. This is especially true for holidays like Christmas. It is the kind of town where everyone knows everyone else, and Christmas becomes one big project that everyone partakes in. If you’re turning up your nose at the thought of spending Christmas in Chepstow because it is boring, you couldn’t be more wrong. Let us show you all the wonderful things you can do in Chepstow for this holiday season.

Chepstow

Pre-Season Preparation

In Chepstow, the fun starts a month before. By November, the majority of households all have their Christmas decorations up in time for the grand “Christmas Lights Switch on Event”, which happens on the 25th of November. On this day, the square is filled with stalls offering baked goods and gift items for sale. The event also coincides with another event, the Chepstow Steampunk Winter Festival, which was held at the Drill Hall. The event features a huge bazaar featuring handmade craft and Steampunk-themed items.

Christmas Themed Attractions for the Family

If you’re looking for family-friendly attractions to truly feel the spirit of Christmas, Chepstow is one of the few places where your kids can spend time with good, old Santa. The Chepstow Garden Centre is the location of Santa’s Grotto, a fun gathering where your kids can get a gift from Santa and make new friends in the process. The Grotto has different themes for each year and it usually gets so packed that we encourage you to make a booking in advance so you don’t run out of slots.

If you want to encourage the Christmas spirit of giving onto your little ones, attend the Carol Singing at Chepstow Nursing Homes. Here at Chepstow, everyone is family and we don’t want anyone to feel alone during the Christmas. Singing Christmas songs and keeping the elderly members of our community company is sure to bring smiles to their faces - and, you’ll leave feeling accomplished, knowing you’ve made someone’s day happy.

Christmas in Chepstow

Musical Christmas Holiday

Despite its size, Chepstow is a town that is packed with plenty of events for music fans - especially if you’re a fan of the 80’s and 90’s. The town incorporates its love for music with the Christmas spirit to come up with Christmas parties that pay tribute to great artists. In December the town holds its annual 80s Night Christmas Party at the Chepstow Racecourse and the fun doesn’t stop there. Over the following days, there’s a separate tribute Christmas party for Elvis, the Beatles, and Robbie Williams.

The Victory Church in Chepstow isn’t one to get left behind in all the celebration. In fact, it’s holding its own musical event with live bands and hot drinks to warm your spirits. It’s a family affair, and the best thing about it? It’s absolutely free!

Christmas celebrations are never complete without a good ballet. Although Chepstow doesn’t have its own ballet performance, it is screening Bolshoi Ballet’s “The Nutcracker” live directly from Moscow. The screening will take place at The Drill Hall on the 17th of December. All proceeds will go to the Chepstow Museum.

Christmas Dining

People think that because Chepstow is an older town, it doesn’t have amazing accommodations for travellers. For several years now, the St. Pierre Marriot Hotel and Country Club has been continuously proving them wrong with its top-notch quality cuisine and amazing accommodations. For the Christmas holiday, the hotel is accepting bookings for its Christmas lunch and dinner packages. All you need to do is make the booking – the hotel will take care of everything, from drinks at the reception, to the different Canapés served at your table. If you want to spend your Christmas pampered and well-fed, St. Pierre’s packages are definitely what the doctor ordered.

Nearby Attractions

If Chepstow Christmas events aren’t enough for you, there’s always the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean nearby with even more activities for you to enjoy with your loved ones. If you love to shop, the Christmas Market at Lydney should give you everything you need, from food to souvenirs you can take home. The market is ongoing through all Fridays and Saturdays of December until the 17th.

If partying is more your thing, December Party Nights by Bells Hotel and Country Club in Coleford should satisfy the party animal in you. The party starts with a sumptuous 3-course meal so you can have enough energy to dance the night away.

These are just some of the many things you can do in Chepstow this Christmas time. As you can see, Chepstow is far from boring when it comes to the Yuletide season. With so many events and activities lined up for the month of December, your only problem should be how to attend them all.
