Winchester Guildhall

Winchester Guildhall is one of the most imposing buildings in Winchester, a striking Victorian building located at the Northern end of the High Street. Winchester attracts both tourists, visitors and locals with its shopping and historic buildings throughout the year. Winchester Park and Ride facilities drop off potential customers close to the Guild Hall throughout the year, with at Christmas the drop off point being even closer. Our markets here attract a lot of attention from both locals and visitors, our spring and Christmas season markets being the most popular. During the Christmas season the footfalls here can be enormous with regular counts of 2500 – 4000 even on a Friday and Sunday.


Winchester is certainly a thriving city with its beautiful and historic cathedral providing possibly the main draw for visitors. Tourists from all across the world regularly visit Winchester cathedral as well as wanting to visit the ‘Round Table’ located in Winchester Great Hall and taking its part in Arthurian legends. Stall holders have sold their products to customers from numerous countries, the USA, Australia, China as well as numerous European countries now being the location of many of their products.

We utilise 2 different halls within the large complex of rooms known as Winchester Guildhall. In the spring we tend to use the smaller and more atmospheric King Charles Hall and in November and December, the larger Bapsy Hall. The halls are well served by a lift or stairs, enabling stall holders to move their products into the particular hall we are utilising, though some carrying is always required. Unloading is right outside the rear door of the Hall complex before moving on to one of the local public car parks. There are several disabled bays just behind the hall, making this venue suitable for those with disabilities.


This venue has its group of stall holders who often do extremely well, adapting their products to the time of year and to the type of customers who come into the venue. Those who actively sell their products can do very well here and many have built up an established customer base who visit each market that we run. We are always looking for new stall holders to join us at this location throughout the year, though our Christmas season markets with their huge footfalls always sell out fast. It needs to be noted however that spending can be just as good in the spring as it is at Christmas with many stall holders achieving sales of £300+ throughout the year.
