    Kids - 10,11 and 2 loved it. Free - but ask for donations. 3 levels and loads squeezed in. A great quick place to visit if it's sunny or a lovely place to visit if it's raining.  more »

  • Small but interesting. Mostly features Roman history
  • This is a great little place if you have a spare hour or so, providing a fairly comprehensive history of Winchester and the surrounding areas from the Iron Age through to the present. Small and perfectly formed.
  • Very interesting & cosy little Museum that is free admission to go & learn lots of interesting facts about this amazing historical City. Nice staff with lots of little things downstairs to purchase before you leave.
  • Free admission to the museum. It's a really quaint little shop with helpful staff.
  • It's a great place to learn more about the city. It's quite small but informative and free admission. Winchester 01/10/2016

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.
