  • King Alfred the Great is glorified with this huge statue set on a granite plinth. Difficult to miss if you visit Winchester High Street  more »
  • It's a bronze statue, 4.57 meters high and weighing five tons. It was erected in 1901 to commemorate the thousand years of the death of "Alfred the Great", and is located very close to the city's cathedral.

  • Well maintained and clean town. The park next to the King Alfred Statue is absolutely stunning. So well maintained with a delightful little tearoom hidden away within it. A worthy credit to the town and the staff that do the work to it.
  • Nice place overall, good parking and have some nice pubs/ restaurants and greenery around there. Just be careful of the busses!
  • When we Visit a place like this on a day out like we did,you have to see as much as you can.You walk from the main shopping area we were on our way to see the amazing City Mill you can’t but notice this magnificent statue of one of our Kings long gone,which stands proudly in the centre of the road of this beautiful City which is steeped in history.If you haven’t been it’s a great place to look around,with lots to see and do.With the beautiful Cathedral,lovely little Museum,pretty parks and plenty of shops,cafes and restaurants to choose from.Enjoy
  • A very important statue !! He was King of the Wessex and Winchester was it's capital . Great shops and streets with a Rick Stein Restaurant . It's one of most favourite towns . Public are always in a good mood there too ! Antique street market there every first and third Sunday in the month . Parking free on Sundays !
  • If you like history and expensive restaurants then you'll like Winchester, there ain't much else 😉. Seriously, Winchester is an overwhelming overpriced area but people like it. It's been ruined by over development, but only the well off can afford it. Even the Church has been infected by greed and marketing. Admission fees and commercial marketing has taken over.
