  • You have almost been looking, so in retrospect are these remains of this castle. This ruin is free and gives a fair picture of the structure of this old Castle.

  • It's free, our kids loved it, it was quiet (only 2 other families at 10.45 am) and really interesting. Definitely worth it if it's sunny.  more »
  • Sssssssh - don't tell the world, or we won't be able to continue to enjoy this treasure undisturbed.  more »

  • Free entry April to October. Owned by English Heritage, information boards provide some information about the site which was the mediaeval seat of the bishops of Winchester. Adjacent to the current Bishops' palace, an interesting English baroque building in use so rarely open to visitors.
  • Castle ruins. Lovely ruins.

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.
