Experience the spine-tingling echoes of the choristers, acclaimed as being one of the best cathedral choirs in Britain, as they sing evensong.
The sacred space of Winchester Cathedral has resounded with music every day for almost a thousand years inspiring worshippers and visitors alike. Today this great choral tradition continues with daily services set to the music of great composers and sung in the unique English style.
The cathedral also hosts regular musical events, from concerts featuring national artists and orchestras, to performances by local musicians and choirs. The world-famous cathedral, with the longest medieval nave in Europe is also home to outstanding works of art alongside the tombs of Jane Austen, Izaak Walton and the early English kings.
Don’t miss the Winchester Bible – incredibly created by a single scribe – on view in the library, and Antony Gormley’s powerful statue, Sound II, hidden away in the evocative setting of the cathedral crypt.
