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 on:-
Tel: 01962 857276
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.
Coach parties and groups from all over the UK and overseas are most welcome. Group organisers are asked to book in advance. There is no charge to enter the Christmas Market and a free meet and greet service is available from the coach drop-off points.
To make the most of your visit, we encourage you to take time to visit the Cathedral. Recognising that time is of the essence, we have developed a ‘highlights’ tour that takes 30 minutes (approx.) to complete. Group admission rates apply.
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
