Where to stay in Winchester

Hotels, B&Bs, and inns offer rooms on the upper floors of the historical town center's Victorian, Georgian, and Tudor buildings. These look out over the pedestrian streets, markets, and shops, as well as provide a convenient location to the main attractions. Cottages for rent near the River Itchen are set among thick trees near the water, but are still within walking distance of many of the city attractions.

  • A beautiful location and amazing surroundings (as it is by the Water Meadows), historic building with a long history and it is really interesting to have a look around at. Many events such as fairs are held here, so look out for signs around the area for information and dates that they are held on.
  • An interesting stop for people looking around the environs of Winchester.
  • Love the history of the place, and the beauty of the buildings and setting.
  • Lovely church and beautiful historic venue. Lovely little cafe too with friendly staff
  • The tea shop is deeply civilised. And it closes for lunch. Wonderful cake. Lovely people. Splendid cake forks.
