As s person who used to go to the old Yankee Candle in MA, this beings back great memories. They always have sales and pass out coupons on way in. They have back room that snows. Department 56, Manger sets, ornaments, plus all the candles you wish to smell. Candle making for little ones. This is A MUST stop

We were here 3 years ago and when we mentioned we would be travelling close to Williamsburg, our kids requested that we return. While the shopping part is fun for the adults, the Wax Works is especially nice for the kids. Our kids have enjoyed this both times we have been there and highly recommend it to anyone who is...

Ok so when we walked in....and yes my wife had to twist my arm because candle joints aren't really my thing but her and my daughter wanted to go in. The place was huge and I joked with her that this is her version of my favorite place Bass Pro Shops! She bought a ton of candles and her and... More

Candle heaven. Every scent. Went during sale - great value. It was worth the trip. Was looking for bayberry candles which they had.

An assortment of products are sold here. Of course, candles of all scents and sizes to jewelry and handbags, toys, kitchen items, and candy but the most interesting place to visit is the Christmas Village where one enters a square filled with decorated Christmas trees in the darkness of night and every so often snow falls from the sky. The... More

Huge store with all kind of merchandise to browse. Lots of variety and scents of yankee candles with 50% off several items. Bought a couple of $1 Yankee car fresheners. Great smells.

Thought me and the kids would be bored while wife shopped. Me and the kids didn't want to leave. Cheap snacks. Tons of decorations and displays. And my wife said it was a great sale. I wouldn't know, but it was pretty nice being there.

Dec 24 was our visit..got there at opening and there was a line..to be expected..we waited about 45 minutes. Staff allowed ample time for each child to visit with Santa and for families to take pics. Santa was realistic looking and very nice. Everyone was friendly and cheerful. Pictures were expensive, in my opinion. Place smelled yummy..and there is so... More

My entire family enjoyed spending the evening at the Yankee Candle. The children dipped candles and shopped for Christmas gifts, all while being in a climate controlled facility. The staff was extremely friendly and interacted with the children at many of the areas of the business. Very relaxing, a must do that does not cost anything to see.

Been visiting here for years with the wife and kids. This year, in addition to Santa and candle dipping, you can create your own scented candles in a jar (Sort of like sand painting.) Great place for Christmas gifts and keeps the kids entertained.
