Winchester is a must-visit destination for all those in search of an authentic Christmas experience. The Cathedral is at the heart of the festivities with its stunning Christmas Market and real Ice Rink. 2016 marks the 10th anniversary of these hugely popular events. For the first time ever the Ice Rink will have a clear roof offering the same great views with the additional benefit of a guaranteed rain-free skate.
Please be aware that the Christmas Market gets very busy at weekends so allow plenty of time for travel and parking. This also applies to those visiting the Ice Rink as you will be required to walk through the Christmas Market. We operate a queuing system at weekends to alleviate pressures through the narrow entrance points to the Inner Close.
