Founded in 2006, the Christmas Market is recognised as one of the best in Europe, renowned for its unique location, high quality exhibitors and bustling atmosphere. Wonderful Christmas gifts, decorations and festive foods can be found in abundance.

Winchester Cathedral's Christmas 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 Inner Close surrounding an open-air real ice rink. All their exhibitors have been hand-picked for their interesting, high quality and unique products many of which can’t be bought on the high street.

The 2014 Christmas Market will be running from Thu 20 Nov to Sun 21 Dec. Open every day, 10am-6pm from Sun-Wed and 10am-7.30pm from Thu-Sat. 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.

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.

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 provide a warm and comfortable setting with plenty of seating and great menus.
