Escape to Winchester this Christmas season as the perfectly preserved medieval citadel embraces its title, ‘England’s Christmas Capital’, for the third year running.
Enjoy the Christmas Market which will be running daily from Thursday 22 November or don your hat and gloves and head to the Christmas ice rink.
Winchester is also famed for its unique shopping atmosphere and at Christmas time, with the lights twinkling overhead, it comes into its own. A refreshing blend of independent shops, big-name retailers, department stores and regular street markets, there’s a real possibility to crack the Christmas shopping list in one entirely pleasant experience.
More details and events will be published on this website throughout November so keep coming back to find out more.
