  • Description

  • Dates & Prices

The pretty wooden chalets are situated in the Cathedral’s historic Close surrounding the covered, rain-free real ice rink. All 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 Christmas Market's 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, the Cathedral Refectory and Ice Rink Café Bar & Kitchen provide a warm and comfortable setting with plenty of seating and great menus.

British Crafts
Winchester Cathedral invite 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.
