Winchester, England

November 17 - December 22. Winchester’s Christmas market has been deemed one of the best in Europe for its unique location - wooden chalets line the Cathedral’s historic Close and surround an open-air ice rink. The exhibitors are hand-chosen and the market is inspired by traditional German Christmas markets. [Photo: Joe Low]
