Winchester Christmas Market & Exhibitions: The shorter days means Winchester Christmas Market is on again and numerous exhibitions, including Orla Kiely, to dispel the gloom.

Holt Services is taking three trips to Winchester this year. Winchester is a fantastic day trip destination in the run up to Christmas. So look out for ice skating, the traditional winter market, exhibitions and the cathedral.

It is a city deserving of a second visit in the summer to get the best of the cafes, beautiful countryside and river. Also the shopping is diverse and pretty much every shop you might want is there.

Winchester was the first capital of England and home of Alfred the Great. Why not visit the remains of his castle stronghold and the impressive Great Hall? In addition, the Military Museum is a mine of fascinating exhibits and information. Winchester’s Military Museums are a group of six independent and related regimental museums in Peninsula Barracks and Lower Barracks. For instance, there are Hussar, infantry, Royal Green Jacket, and Gurka histories to discover.
