  • The ruins of Wolvesy Castle. Great place to bring the family to see a place in history. Benches and seating available for picnics and lots of information to the castles past. Opens most days during the summer months, but closed during winter months.
  • Really lovely spot, well worth a visit. Sturdy shoes a must!
  • The castle is a good surprise when visiting Winchester since it is a bit hidden. However it is worth a visit to get to know more about the history of the city. And admission is free!
  • Only ruins of the castle but some quite large areas of walls still standing so interesting to look at and wander around.
  • No heating or lighting. No welcome.
