Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market

About

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.

About the Christmas Market

Winchester Cathedral's Christmas Market is inspired by traditional German Christmas markets and attracts close to half a million visitors each year. The pretty wooden chalets are situated in the Cathedral’s historic Close surrounding an open-air real ice rink. All the exhibitors have been hand-picked for their interesting, high quality and unique products many of which can’t be bought on the high street.

Many of the exhibitors will be attending for the full duration but some will only be here for the first half with new exhibitors filling the chalets for the second half.

Food and drink

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink at the Christmas Market. You’ll find chalets selling festive favourites such as, mulled wine, bratwurst, mince pies and stollen. Alternatively, theCathedral Refectory and Ice Rink Café Bar & Kitchen provide a warm and comfortable setting with plenty of seating and great menus.

British crafts

The cathedral invites many British craftspeople to take part in the Christmas Market. If you’re looking for that special something make sure you visit the jewellers, painters, glass makers and textile artists selling unique gifts and decorations.

Nativity Scene

At the far end of the British Crafts Village you will find an enchanting nativity scene – providing an ideal opportunity to share the Christmas story amongst your party and take a fun photograph for Christmas.
