  • In the museum that is located in the Westgate are you tired as this is only one room. The museum is accessible free of charge, one asks a free contribution. Nice to old clothes and weapons. Does not amount to much, but for a rainy day fun to half an hour.

  • Nice views down the high street from the roof level. Interesting displays inside too.
  • Very interesting, great view from the roof, shame it isn't open more often
  • Hidden away at the top of the high street is the entrance door on the West gate to this great little museum. Missed by most people that visit Winchester. Highly recommended that you spend 30 minutes exploring this fascinating place and learning more about the history of the city.
  • One of the two remaining Winchester city gates, this is well worth a visit to examine the medieval structure itself, the views of the city from the roof (for the reasonably agile), and the contents illustrating its later historical uses.
  • Museum in one of the old gates of the city. Stunning views from the terrace outdoors.

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.
