Winchester

The stunning Hampshire city of Winchester is situated on the edge of the rolling South Downs National Park.

England’s ancient capital is steeped in heritage and boasts an array of historic attractions, the best-known being the stunning Winchester Cathedral. With the longest medieval nave in Europe, the cathedral also contains the tombs of numerous monarchs of Wessex and Winchester and the author Jane Austen. It is also home to the Winchester Bible, one of the finest 12th-century bibles to have survived.

Climb up St Giles’ Hill from where you can see the sweep of medieval and Georgian buildings laid out below. Explore the galleries at Winchester City Museum, discover the timeless legend of King Arthur in the Great Hall – one of the finest surviving medieval halls or stroll through the water meadows beside the River Itchen. The city is also home to Winchester College – one of the oldest continuously-running schools in the country which has been used as a filming location for a number of blockbusters such as Harry Potter and Les Misérables.

Wander through Winchester’s winding streets and you will also find a wealth of shopping opportunities with chic boutiques, designer stores and big name shops along with cafés, traditional pubs and restaurants, perfect for a tipple or bite to eat!
