Coming up in a couple of weeks is the Winchester Gin and Prosecco Festival. Winchester is a lively hot spot for craft alcohol events including The Whiskey Affair events and the Hop Blossom craft beer festival. If you love to celebrate a hard working week with a boozy weekend then Winchester is a great place to enjoy some well crafted, small batch alcohols.

If you are planning a Winchester holiday in 2019 then perhaps you’ll look to book over one of the below weekends and attend some of the fantastic crafted events Winchester has to offer. These events are great for a UK city break with friends or a good excuse to bring the family together mid-way through the year. We have fantastic Winchester accommodation in the heart of the city centre to rest your head after a diverse evening of tastings.
