TOP TEN TIPPED CHRISTMAS MARKET RETURNS TO WINCHESTER CATHEDRAL

SATURDAY 17 NOVEMBER – THURSDAY 20 DECEMBER 2018 (ICE RINK RUNS TO 2 JANUARY)

Regularly tipped in TOP 10 LISTINGS and running from Saturday 17 November to Thursday 20 December, Winchester Cathedral’s Christmas Market is recognised as one of the best Christmas Markets in Europe because of its unique location, high quality exhibitors and bustling atmosphere. Wonderful Christmas gifts, decorations and festive foods can be found in abundance, with a delightful Food Court, British Crafts Village, and over 100 chalets to explore.

One of the things that makes it truly unique is the real Ice Rink spectacularly located in the shadow of Winchester Cathedral, which continues until 2 January. The clear roof guarantees a  rain-free festive skate, so you can truly skate beneath the stars around a giant Christmas Tree without having to battle with the elements.

The Christmas Market is free to enter, and tickets for skating with many concessions and special offers will be available from 1 September from the Cathedral Box office (01962 857276 and www.winchester-cathedral.org.uk).

Food offerings abound, either in the Ice Rink café, food court or award-winning Cathedral Refectory. Make the most of your day with a Christmas or Twilight Tour (run the same days as the market) and gaze down on the Christmas Market and Ice Rink from the top of the Cathedral tower.

Details of all Christmas activities are available in the What’s On Guide which can be downloaded from www.winchester-cathedral.org.uk/whats-on and is attached to this release.
