Our adventure of living in England

My husband and I moved to Winchester, England in the summer of 2002 for an international assignment with his company. We encountered many adventures during our stay and also took the opportunity to travel all over England and the rest of Europe.

I did not get a job during our year in England, so I used that time to volunteer with the Winchester Cathedral as a tour guide and entrance steward. The cathedral is, without a doubt, the main attraction in the city. It is a must see!

    Hi thanks for your Winchester pages. We're going there for a short break and it's good to see it through someone else's eyes, not just the tourist board's view. Although we only live 100 miles away it's often those places close by that you overlook.

    Excellent page, with lots of insider info. I was in Winchester for half an hour or so and was only able to see the cathedral. Must go back to see the other places you describe.

    Hi, Jessica, great Winchester pages. You certainly seem to have the place taped. It appears we even took some of the same photos (see River Itchen e.g.) It certainly is a lovely place. fergy.

    A place I've never visited, but must get round to seeing.

    The structure dates back to the 16th century. Creeky floors. No privacy shades on windows. In the bathroom, the shower was a trickle; in the sink, you can either get v. hot water, or v. cold (can't mix them). Horrible service at breakfast. Stay away.

    With both the 'best' and 'worst' of where to stay, I'll bookmark this page. Looks like a fine town alternative for a weekend away from London!
