"ST. JOHN HOUSE & CHAPEL - 3" Top 5 Page for this destination Chapel of St John the Baptist Tip by balhannah


Next door to the Almhouse's is the Chapel and St. John House.
The notice said "Visitor's most welcome", well, I couldn't get inside! I hope you can!

At least I could see the outside, and could see that it was very old. The chapel was built in 1289, with a second Chapel dedicated to St. Mary built in 1332.
Part of the Western Wall of this chapel, with original windows and doorway, still are in the Undercroft.
St. John's House joins the Chapel and is owned by the St John's Winchester Charity [previous tip]

Address: Broadway street
Directions: Near King Alfred statue

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
