  • If your Winchester comes in (for example, by bus), you will be greeted by King Alfred. High on his pedestal he looks out over the bus station. Photogenic image.

  • Not alot to see apart from the statue which is in between a busy roundabout and car park. It's well maintained but nothing particularly special to look at. You're better off heading to the cathedral or other historic places which are close by.
  • I always like going into Winchester when I'm visiting my daughter who lives in Alton in Hampshire. I love the shops, the park.the cathedral and the refectory where I often stop for something to eat. There's a charge for visiting the cathedral and the ticket is valid for a whole year. It's lovely to stroll by the river Itchen on a nice day. Also visiting Winchester Mill owned by the National Trust of which I'm a member. The city has a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere and I'd definitely recommend it for a day out or even a few days break.
  • This statue commemorates the only English king to be called "The great". He drove out the Vikings and ruled Wessex, which became England and became he a legendary king.
  • 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....

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.
