  • Worth taking a look at if your passing. Great if you want to know more about local history. It's very impressive.
  • This is just awesome. The father of Englaland. All that is needed now is Uthred of Bebbenburgh....
  • Worth a photo or two. The great king of Wessex that kept the Vikings at bay! He also united the kingdoms between his reign and his sons' to form England as we know today.
  • Nice place. Good meeting Point

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.
