Christmas at Winchester Cathedral

The highly anticipated opening of the Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market and Ice Rink is just a few days away with the opening on Monday 20 November.

Now recognised as one of the best in Europe with its unique location, high quality exhibitors and bustling atmosphere. Wonderful Christmas gifts, decorations and festive foods can be found in abundance.

It is a must-visit destination for all those in search of an authentic Christmas experience. 

The market is inspired by traditional German Christmas markets and attracts more than 350,000 visitors each year. The pretty wooden chalets are situated in the Cathedral’s historic Close surrounding the real ice rink with the addition of a new clear roof for all weather skating.
