  • I learnt so much about the Gurkhas, it was an eye opener
  • Brilliant museum really pleasent staff and excellent illustrated pictures really enjoyable experience highly recommended would deffinatley visit again
  • The history of the fighting men from Nepal
  • If you have any interest in the Ghurkas then you won't be disappointed. Nicely done museum. Not flashy and nothing interactive so maybe not one for the kids, but certainly informative for the history buffs. £4 entry.

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.
