Planning on taking the children to visit Father Christmas? Come along to our Santa’s Toy Mine at Rhondda Heritage Park, where a magical adventure awaits you around every corner.

Suitable for all ages, Santa’s Toy Mine is one of the most popular festive attractions in the South Wales Valleys. 

Booking your visit could not be easier –you are just one click away from doing it!

The Council has once again granted permission for Father Christmas and his helpers to set up a festive base at Rhondda Heritage Park, its family tourist attraction

A trip to Santa’s Toy Mine is a must in the build-up to the festive season – you will also come face-to-face with our talking reindeer!

Meet Santa on this unique magical ‘underground’ adventure, but book your tours soon as spaces tend to fill up fast. 

Santa’s Toy Mine at Rhondda Heritage Park opens on Sunday, November 27, and will remain open right up until Christmas Eve. 

Cllr Joy Rosser, Cabinet Member for Safer Communities, Libraries and Heritage, said: “This is an exciting time for us all as we eagerly await the arrival of Santa and his trusty helpers. 

“We have so much happening at Rhondda Heritage Park as the Council continues to improve its customer offer. 

“Improvements include the opening of a new café on the ground floor, honouring the Italian café community of South Wales, restructuring the site layout, and creating a fresh interpretation of the history of Rhondda and its links to the coal industry. 

“A new simulator experience will also once again form part of the guided ‘Miners’ tours with the introduction of interactive technology as part of the experience. 

“All this happening in the new year, and the opening of Santa’s Toy Mine very soon, will see a huge influx in visitors – and we cannot wait. 

“Santa’s Toy Mine is one of the most magical places in Rhondda Cynon Taf at this time of year. We look forward to welcoming visitors from all across the County Borough and beyond.”
