  • A fascinating collection of historical artifacts, from the deeply personal to the once widely owned. It was also quite amazing just how many wars/campaigns/battles these soldiers have been involved in - they have quite a history of being, surprisingly frequently successfully, skillfully violent. There's a lot, really quite a lot for a smallish museum on two floors, of text to read. It's usually well written, though, and often clearly explains complex situations that shaped history. I've tasted this five stars, but I should say this is five stars for a small city's military museum. But I was totally fascinated!
  • An amazing military museum. Well worth a visit. If you like British military history and you have the time you could spend ours here.
  • Took my parents whom were over from NZ. The staff were very friendly and the displays really, really good. The staff even gave my step father a free book.
  • Excellent There is a stear lift to those whom can't go up on the stears. Fantastic displays! The entrance fee was £3.75. Carers goes free!
  • Really good regimental museum of the predecessors of the Rifles well worth visiting

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.
