Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market is recognised as one of the best in Europe.

Taking place from 18th November – 22nd December, Winchester Cathedral’s Christmas Market is renowned for its bustling atmosphere, stunning location and handpicked high quality exhibitors, which attracts visitors from around the world each year who come to shop at the pretty wooden chalets, situated within the historic grounds.

The wooden chalets are inspired by traditional German Christmas Markets, and combined with the festive lighting, the sound of Christmas carols and the aroma of mulled wine and cinnamon drifting in the air, visitors will be transported into a festive setting to purchase their Christmas gifts and take in the atmosphere.

For those in search of an authentic Christmas experience, the Cathedral is at the heart of the City’s celebration, with its many Christmas services, carol concerts, events.

More information coming soon.

The Christmas Market will be spread over a wider area within the Cathedral grounds to allow plenty of room for social distancing with increased space and wider walkways.

Whilst it is an outdoor event so inherently much safer, there are popular times for visiting which may result in crowding, so people are encouraged to consider coming earlier or later in the day.

There is no timed entry or tickets to the Christmas Market. Queuing may be necessary.

The wearing of face coverings in crowded areas is encouraged.

Regular and controlled cleaning of toilet facilities.
