Winchester Travel Guide: 195 reviews and 416 photos



Former seat of King Alfred the Great

One hour from London

Spend a day!

I don't know if we were lucky or what, but we managed a car park straight away in Broadway, which was as close as you can get to the sight's.


So.... Would you care to join me for a walk to see some of the sights of Winchester?

Did you enjoy the walk?

I hope so, but do allow more time than I had, because there is enough to see in Winchester to fill one full day.
I enjoyed everything I saw in Winchester, and really wished I could have seen some of the other historic buildings in this ancient City.

    Visit here a few years ago, your tips are a great reminder of the pleasant time we had

    A lovely cathedral and excellent pictures. I had never seen a picture of it before, although I had heard about it. Thanks!

    After reading your Winchester tips I've made a mental note to go there sometime. We've been to a number of places nearby (when our daughter was going to school on the Isle of Wight) but somehow never stopped in Winchester -- or Stonehenge, for that matter.

    We were in Winchester 3 weeks ago attending a civil partnership. We will be back for another visit in a couple of months when we have more time.

    Hi Dee,
    a very good page about Winchester - I will go there in March, following Jane Austen's footsteps... It is sad that you can't visit the house, but on the other hand she did not spent that much time there and I'll also visit her house in Chawton :-)
    Your pictures are so beautiful!

    Thank you, Dee, for giving me some more ideas of where to go in England. I've never been in Winchester and it's so close to London.
