  • A delightful museum at the heart of the City near to Winchester's celebrated Cathedral. The museum, free to enter, encapsulates the history of this great city in a well presented and informative style. A great introduction for any visitor to the City.
  • What a fantastic museum! One of the best city museums I've been in. Sorry to not stay longer to explore the galleries.
  • A lovely sweet little museum located next to the cathedral. Lots to see and friendly staff.
  • 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.

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.
